What is current precipitation of time that would possibly take converting TTDpatch to C?

I thought they aren't yet.


P.S. Er, what will happen to assemblers? Those who've studied assembler code, I guess they'll possibly become "jobless" as time passes. :?

They are still needed, compiler writting makes use of this knowledge, as well as many other smaller bespoke systems like phones. So don't worry :wink:.

High level is easy, but low level is powerfull.

I can think of some times where knowing ASM is useful:

- Creating an OS and device drivers

- Reverse engineering - the company wants to maintain some code, but the programmer left

- Reverse engineering viruses so an antivirus vendor can update its database
