TITLE: You May Be A Programmer If ... #1 AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: December 15, 2010 4:30 PM DESC: ----- BODY: ... you get to the code generation part of the compiler course you are teaching. You realize that you have forgotten the toy assembly language from the textbook for its toy virtual machine, so you have to relearn it. You think, "It's gonna be fun to write programs in this language again." Assembly language? A toy assembly language? Really? I just like to program. Besides, after programming in Klein this semester, a language I termed as an integer assembly language, moving to a very RISC assembly doesn't seem like that big a step down. Assembly language can be fun, though I don't think I'd want to program in it for a living! -----
