Yes! There are multiple really good reasons.
1. It helps you understand how a computer thinks. This is so critical for writing efficient code quickly.
2. There are things you can only do in assembly. For example, say you want a stack dump at the time of a crash. You can find utilities to do this for you, but the end result is the same: they look up the stack pointer at the esp register, and use the information there to look up into the PDB to grab symbols. Also, "asm int 3;" is a software breakpoint. So badass.
3. For some particularly nasty bugs, being able to understand a code's disassembly is incredibly useful. This is helpful for things like a class being compiled differently in two different compilation units.
4. For the things you really
need to be efficient, asm can be the way to go if you know what you're doing.

got a lotta random questions here and there so i thought maybe that'd be best way to ask xd
but basically we are trying to recreate riot's matchmaking (on intermediate level) using java/c & sql
how would you suggest approaching this? (we have some ideas but we're not sure if we would be doing it efficiently)
if riotschmick would like to shed some light on this it would be much appreciated as well
Sorry, my friends list is full, which means you get auto-declined.
I actually know very little about matchmaking, so Schmick is your best bet!
