This question already has an answer here:
Recently, I have been thinking about creating golflang assemblers. Like assemblers, they just substitute a mnemonic(or a word) with the actual symbol. Since many golflangs aren't much more comprehensible than binary, it could use assembly-like programs to ease the coding. I know this makes golflangs easier to use and might make code golf more pointless for some non-golflang golfers. However, there have been tons of previous discussions on how meaningful using a golflang is, and I think using "assemblers" doesn't change that, because it's the logic that makes good answers, not the effort you put in the mundane process of finding the right functions. However, I'd still like to see what the community says. What do you think, guys?
Edit: In case the question's not clear enough, it's sort of like asking whether using assemblers is acceptable in a competition that asks you to submit machine code.
