Some people still program in machine language. Although it's not very common. And some people program in assembler, which is basically as close to machine language as you can be without being in machine language.aaaddd4747 wrote:mfw you literally want to do machine code... they stopped doing that stuff for a reason: its a pain and never works between two systems (unless they're identical).Zukaro wrote:
what I mean with I dun wanna use moar code I didn't write is basically I don't want my program to only be able to run in a virtual environment and stuff leik that.
Basically I want my code to run on the metal. :p
unless that isn't what you mean... in any case i understand the desire to have it "just run" anywhere without any fuss.
But anyways; what I mean is have it run on the metal. Like, the OS runs on the metal for example. As in, it's not virtualized (unless run in a virtual machine). So anything written in C++ runs on the metal, whereas if it's written in Java and some other languages it runs in a virtual machine :p
But if you want it to just run anywhere Java is probably the best for that.
I do somewhat want to learn machine language though, as it'd be nice to know it. :p But I doubt I'd use it much.
