That buttembly language happens to be the only easy way to make a computer do arithmetic the way one wants it to do. HLL are braindead and not versatile in this way. Try to do a bit manipulation that a compiler thinks is illegal or klunky or not approved. It will undermine every time. In some cases, it won't let you finish the compile nor write the executable.
Now, this is a feature for those who aren't trying to do new things. Herman is not in this clbutt of user.

On Tue, 05 Apr 2005 10:12:22 -0500, Herman Rubin I've looked at J, briefly, but haven't used it. It didn't seem particularly mathematically friendly, as the lovely typographical operators...
This is what you (generic you) should be investigating. If he is wrestling with the computer, it is possible that this will become an industry-wide problem. It is only recently that computer gear has become cheap enough that serious compute-bound investigations can be done on a deskstop. If the computing biz goes the way it has, there will be certain apps that will have to do similar tricks that Herman is doing now.
That sounds like a reasonable request to me. There must be something about CDC 6600 architecture that made is work easier. Was it the user interface? Was it that the CDC did arithmetic well? Was it easy for a mere user to get the CPU to do instruction ends? Was the user able to "watch" those ends and their results happen. Remember what this guy's work is: stat analysis. Talk to a physicist of the plumbing variety. I can almost guarantee you that they have similar complaints about getting the computer to do what they want without wasting their time convincing it.
Note that anything that runs billyboy's software is arrogant and insists that it knows better than user what the user needs to compute. I have named this PCitis.
Another thing that I perceived from Herman's preference to the CDC was that he had access to precise, terse documentation about how to do extraordinary things with the hardware.
Note the precise, terse description; it has to do with not wasting the user's time.

I have also looked briefly at J, and it could even do some of the macro generation I would like, but it still does not seem like the right approach. I am...

I cannot do it easily with the present buttemblers. I believe I could do it with buttemblers with notation designed...
