Perhaps too much cutting corners on my side. I meant - it is a waste of time in general programming, as that's what the original question was about. I did some assembly programming when it was necessary, but these were rare and highly specialized cases, and these were not full applications, just small parts of a critical code. I rest my case, perhaps just slightly rewording it - in 99.99% of cases using assembler for programming is a waste of time, as higher level languages will do much better job much faster.
Don't know I'd go 99.99, but in general I agree w/ you. My experience is colored by having done a lot of assembler programming under conditions where it was literally impossible to get the job done any other way.
