    You write code on any text editor, the compiler will then tranlate your code into assembly code and it's then when the assebler translates that into something the processor understands, ie numbers. After that the linker will put all the code togehter to make a working program.
    All you have to worry about is writing correct code for the language you're using.

    To add to -=SoKrA=-'s comments, the term you want to use is "machine code", this is what assembler creates.
