Switch / If Statement revisited
Mike Mansheim email (remove spam text)
My $0.02 on C vs. asm:
- I'm not a consultant - I work for a company and my boss wants
stuff written in 'C' so others down the road can more easily
see what is going on. I just use inline asm when necessary.
I have to admit that it tends to be easier to get the big
picture when looking at C, although I don't ever like trying
to figure someone else's code out. Olin style commenting is
the best bet in either case.
- I absolutely don't buy the portability argument for C. There
is too much interaction with i/o ports, timers, interrupts
and other peripherals & hardware for code to be portable to
anything other than another pic - and then C doesn't buy you
- which one is quicker to write depends entirely on the nature
of what needs to be written, as we've seen with the complex
math statement. I think I saw a statement from Andrew Warren
once that he was the fastest asm programmer he knew, yet
there were still some things he could do faster in C.
