Discussion on: Is C still a high level language?

C is the greatest and most powerful high-level assembly language ever. It rocks when you use it for low-level stuff--no better tool for what it does. I had the pleasure of writing compilers, operating systems and system-level code in it for 25 years. Sadly (in a way), I am condemned to write in Java the last 15-20 years of my career; it's just a fact of life today to remain employed.
