Real programmers can (and have) write in hex/octal or binary.  For my
first project at a permanent job, I had to write code for a machine with
no assembler.  Near the end of the project, I wrote a text editor and
(cross) assembler for it, because maintaining the source with pen/ink
was getting tedious.

For the DOS world, real programmers have written a "complete"  *.com 
program using only echo.
