Do compilers normally turn code into an assembly language and then run
an assembler to to convert it into binary? Or does the compiler make
its own representation and itself turn the representation into object
code?


How do assemblers turn assembly into object code? Does the assembly
author have to know the binary numbers to translate the assembly into?
[Some compilers do it one way, some do it the other. Unix compilers have
traditionally compiled into assembler because early on there was a very
fast assembler available.


Re assemblers, of course they have to know the binary numbers in the
computer's instruction set. -John]
