...and not portable, you need to write different code for each
processor, whereas a C compiler can take c code and make the appropriate
assembly from it. So c objects end up written in assembly anyway. The
only advantage in writing directly in assembly is if you think you can
write better code than the compiler, which was quite possible in the
past, but nowadays not so easy.
