"obfuscate" what a great word, I'm going to find a place to use that!

Well written assembler, that is lots of comments, is just as clear as any other code. The problem is these days programmers are not taught the rudimentary principles of good programming. Resources are too cheap, computers are lightning fast, no need for efficiency, not enough need for proper program design. Then they step up to an embedded system and confusion reigns supreme. I'm old, pig headed and all that, but I will tell you what learning to program in machine language and then assembler taught some very valuable lessons and a few tricks along the way.
