Discussion on: Is C still a high level language?

I do get what youre saying, and tbh I didn't realize people were actually get egotistical or at all heated in this.

I don't think assembly is the right word for it, thats all.
It is portable, and does allow for many features that map easily to assembly,
even in some cases allowing for the register keyword etc (although it isnt always guaranteed)

I just think portable and assembly are opposites as assembly programming is very much about familiarity with hardware and programming a specific machine.

"Could you show me an example of such nontrivial translation in C? i++, a[i], b.c, for, etc all are trivial (in context of particular CPU)."

Don't you remember asking for those examples? :)
