I think if you know assembler it is a whole lot easier to understand what sits under the ‘simplifying’ assignments of C++ and its p-code engine.

I find C++ too restrictive and klunky to go back to it. Mind you I find Python equally klunky and annoying because of its use of spaces as delimiters and the way it also unnecessarily wraps around constructs with obscurity. I guess though that this is what you get when you swap bare-metal coding for the protected mode of modern bytecode languages that do not directly interface with the hardware but instead run on a virtual protected computer. Python at least makes up for this by a huge repository of code wrappers. In fact if you want to use AI without making your eyes bleed then Python is pretty much de rigeur.
