    Thumbs up Inline asm

    I realise that I bang on rather about inline asm but it is the only reason I have bothered to learn C. Or, to be more precise, I have learned C because some things are just too laborious to do in pure asm and if you start writing lots of asm routines to do things you are re-inventing C ( which really boils down to a library of clver tricks )

    I think C with inline asm is the perfect combination of high level language and machine level intervention. So, my question is this - should there be a board here devoted to pure asm and/or a board devoted to C/inline asm?

    Any opinions?

    there is one at www.flashdaddee.com


    There are some things you cannot do in inline that you can do in assembly, though. For those things, I use TASM or MASM. Inline is very powerful, but does restrict you somewhat.
