General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

:-) I did not want to start the old ASM vs. C vs. C++ war again. But there are good reasons to write assembly code. And yes, a bad algorithm in assembly stays a bad algorithm :-)
And sometimes, you just can't speed up things anymore.
