Is this possible....
Hey Guys, I don't know if this is possible, but I'm pretty sure it is. How hard/long would it be to write the simplest of simple programs in straight up binary, and where can I write a program in binary? I'm talking simple as in saying "Hey Buddy".
I have looked up many binary tutorials and stuff but they're all about reading or writing binary, not actually as code.
For some reason, this posted like 50 times, could someone delete them please, seeing as I don't quite know how to haha
Jason, I have always loved that cartoon!
This is a great question! I like how your mind works. Writing in binary is quite difficult. The instructions are very dependent on the system architecture. I would suggest that you first look at assembly. When you write for an assembler you are actually writing instructions for the CPU. It's quite fun, if you've never done it before.
Also, binary code is super complex and it would just not be practical to write this in plain binary. A basic Hey Buddy program written in C equates to about 20,000 bytes in Windows. That is a lot of zeros and ones!
Write a Hey Buddy program in C and open the binary file with a hex editor and see how crazy it is!!!

This blog is a reminder that cheating in software development can get you into big trouble. Sometimes developers get really really lazy, OR are pressured to write something using overly simplified data structures. Almost every time this happens you are bitten in the butt! Sometimes the problems show up immediately and other times it may take months or years (especially in integrated systems).
