That is provided the source is written in something resembling ANSI C.
Our gcc today has very little resemblance to ANSI C.  And its the ANSI
that has not kept up, those K&R #1 and #2 books we all once used for a
Bible back in the day is now 24 years old.

Well, no.... more like if the source is written in a high-level, ideally a domain-specific language - where what's going on is easy to follow.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
