Right. Please list the HHL you've used. COBOL, FORTRAN, PL-I? Wann start with 4GLs? CISC buttembler is better than RISC due to availability of the translator. I have looked at a few and they...
Not "typically reserved for buttembly language" in my experience. Nearly every HLL I have used had some form bitwise operators and unsigned types. buttembler != HLL, that is the point really.
I figure you can do pretty much everying in both languages. I find Python easier to read, provides some great primitives for list processing (list comprehensions - YAY !). The big sell for me is the comprehensive set of libraries that are packaged with it, makes moving code from one machine to another easier. I got fed up chasing down PERL packages on CPAN. :(
Duh, yeah. It has done for over a decade, what was your point again ?
RISC machines have orthogonal instruction sets that are easy to learn. They were intended to make better compiler targets, and compilers (at the time) were dumber than people, so they ended up being easier to code for. I find it hard to believe that you have any idea what a RISC instruction set looks like.
Lucky you ! :)
I think the problem with Microchannel is that it was a bit early and it was pricey to implement (physically). PCs were already about bottom dollar cost by then. PCI came at the right time and was dirt cheap compared to the alternatives. It's a very neat bit of work considering the design by committee approach. Possibly the best thing Intel has done for the world (they didn't do *all* the work, but they took part in the effort and made sure it succeeded).

i've frequently claimed that the 801-risc project in the 70s was an adverse reaction to the future system project ... and was looking at doing the exact opposite. future system...
