Well, it could be argued that Gideon Samid said something similar in his
1978 IEEE Computer Society article. His executive summary was "Don't
debug, recode!" Those of us whose first high-level language was APL might
cheerfully agree. --Don
 The definition of HLL changes with the argument. In other circumstances
I'll advocate a good macro assembler is a high-level language, and FORTH,
LISP, etc. are practically machine code.
Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
