Low level languages summary of a discussion session

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 30)


In general, the speakers assume that the arrival of machine-oriented, sometimes called low-level, languages respond to a need in software engineering. Thought and effort need to be put into their design and implementation, and we should consider the interface between these languages and the more classical general-purpose languages. Many points which have already received attention over the last fifteen years are being reconsidered in this new context. This effort is not wasted, but should not ignore what already exists.
