    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 programming language (whether modern means 1967 or 2017 or 2067) is left as an exercise for the reader.

    After having read through Volume 1 (3rd. ed.) I wanted to update my understanding on general assembly languages, which this fascicle does pretty well. The MMIX computer is quite easy to wrap one's head around, unlike the original MIX computer, which dealt with strange concepts from the eyes of a 21st century computer science student. Even though it is short, it is by no means a light read, since the MIXAL code within requires careful study, and there's quite a lot of MIXAL within.
