GDB Topic / Question:
Can assembly language play a significant role in programming for the Super Computers?
No, as assembly language is hard to learn so Fortron & Chapel (Cascade High Productivity Language) are used for programing for super Computers.The main reason or logic for not using assembly language for super computer is that Assembly language is specific to processors , not used for all types of processors. If we have to replace computer then all programs written in assembly language must need to be rewrite.
In Short this is not suitable language for supercomputer
