I know of a rather large IBM shop which still does most of their work
in assembler. Lots of custom work with large databases. Constant
rewriting. What do they do you ask? You know that stuff that shows
up in your mailbox and leaves you wondering where they got your name?

What's more perfect than junk mail programs written in assembler?
They are not on the net of course.
