Donald Knuth wrote (and still is writing) his magnum opus, coding all the algorithms in assembly code, since he knew that programming languages would come and go, and he would have to rewrite his books. He was right about that.

However, his original hypothetical processor dated over 40 years, and he now uses a 'modern' hypothetical processor, which sort of countered the reason of writing out his algorithms in assembly language in the first place.

Supposedly writing out the algorithms in a modern
