With all the level of abstraction introduced by OOL, people seem to forget and underestimate the purpose of
C is first and foremost a
portable assembler, which is why it is still used today. Today's "programmers" want to argue, that
C is old and should be replaced by a different language such as
C++ and any other OOL language are so abstract, that they fail to let the developer imagine how the code will be translated to
assembly and binary code.
In my opinion
C is irreplaceable, and if you are one of those who haven't heard of
assembly yet or argues that low level system knowledge is counterproductive (and believe me there are a lot of these so called programmers around us), then you are not a programmer nor a developer, you are a hobbyist.
