Response to: Why learning assembly language is useful in like 1 case out of tens of thousands
Based on my experience I believe there are lots of instances where the knowledge of assembler is very helpful (certainly a lot more than just "very few and very far between"). For example I often see horribly inefficient C++ programs written by people who don't understand when passing parameters by value is slower than passing by reference and when not. Without any basic understanding of the way passing arguments to a function is actually implemented it is probably quite difficult to write a good C++ program. This was just one example but I can provide a lot more.
