    why not binary?

    most assemblers come with a booklet that tells you how to convert all assembler commands to binary...

    I happen to be an ASM programmer ::fixes tie::, and I love the language. It is powerful, the scope of the language is unbelievable, and it is just...great! But, it is tedious and you must tell the computer to do everything. Sure, if you want a powerful and fast program, ASM is the way to go.

    But, you must also consider C. C is the "high-level Assembly". It is also fast (not as fast, but fast) and it doesn't take nearly as long to program in.

    These are my two favorite languages, C and ASM. They both suit me quite well, I believe. They are perfect!

    I'm just trying to get under the skin a little, I like C/C++ as well. I just recently started learning ASM...

    Actually, real men ( and women ) don't use a compiler or assembler. Real men use copy con prog.exe to write their programs.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Real men spend time with real women... while paying others to write software for them.

    I believe it's in society.h. I checked reality.h, but all I could find were definitions for bills, famine, disease, and some function that simply returns the string "I just want to be friends".

    It's in "Reality.h". But it's not included in MSVC.

    >while paying others to write software for them

    ...and that would be me.

    Real women (tm) please send your resumes to nvoigt@real-life.net. I'll have a look on the next weekend


    [Edit: damn, took to long to write the post *g*. Well then I should try "society.h". I knew the returnvalues were too predictable... ]

    Code:
    while ( !money )
    {
      WriteCode();
    
      money += GetMoneyFrom( Real_men );
    }

    No, but programming is money, and money will just have to be my substitute for life until something better comes along

    Programming and all it's attributes are money and recreation.
    Not just money... I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it to a degree despite the frequent frustrations of code not doing what I told it to do.. but then most of us suffer from that from time to time.

    Life is something that has minor links to programming depending on how you feel about writing computer code(or another person in the business for that matter...) ...
    Life though having a link to programming does really hold it's own.

    Real men spend time with real women... while paying others to write software for them.
    I have to give it to Betazep.. that was well said!



    *Provided of course you have the money to pay others to write the code and you trust those others enough to get the code right...

    I am having trouble stopping laughing... very funny.
