C is a perfectly good assembly language, and moderately portable. In fact if
you miss machine code that much, you can write

   register int a;
   #define CLRA    (a=0)
   #define LDAA(x) (a=*(x))
   #define STAA(x) (*(x)=a)
   #define HALT    (exit(0))
   /* etc */

But I agree that C++ is a bastard language :-)
