Only in assembler.
( I have written a Python program to contol the scan of an electron
microscope, but I had to cheat and use an extension written in C --
but I wouldn't actually call that a "device driver" -- to me that
term has connotations of kernel space and interrupt vectors -- I'ld
call it a device controller. )
However, now that I've been told that all programming languages are
equivalent, I'm going to write my next device driver in Intercal.
( I already have to say "Please" to my computer to get it to work
sometimes -- I might as well put it in the source code! )
