Not Your Father's Assembly Language
Just as high-level languages have evolved over the past 50 years, so
has assembly language. Alas, assembly language has been unfairly
demonized by software engineers whose main experience with assembly
language was in a college or university assembly language course, being
taught with an assembler whose feature list came straight from the
1960s. This talk will discuss why assembly language is still relevant,
and will describe a more modern implementation of assembly language
(HLA - the High Level Assembler), emphasizing the portability aspects
