Here I try to make the point that C++ can actually lead to more effective
code then C. I don't often use a lot of the excess cleverness of C++ in
this sort of environment, especially since I am a proponent of the KISS
principle, but I do use certain non-C features and fully expect increased

And yes, C++ and assembler get along just fine, especially when embedded in
the C++ code as asm statements.

This can quickly degenerate into a C vs. C++ religious war, it usually does:-)
