Is machine code faster than Assembly?
The reason C is faster than assembly is because the only way to write optimal code is to measure it on a real machine, and with C you can run many more experiments, much faster.
Oh, and use the right algorithm; that matters more than everything else put together..
What is difference between compiler and assembler?
The difference between compiler and assembler is that a compiler is used to convert high-level programming language code into machine language code. On the other hand, an assembler converts assembly level language code into machine language code.
Why is C faster?
The reason why C is faster is because it is designed in this way. It lets you do a lot of “lower level” stuff that helps the compiler to optimize the code. Or, shall we say, you the programmer are responsible for optimizing the code. But it’s often quite tricky and error prone.
Why is an assembler faster than a compiler?
Actually, in most cases, writing programs in assembly language, the programmers put more effort in writing smaller and readable code, than in writing faster code. But as a result, these programs always perform faster than their HLL counterparts.
