Prior to Kernighan and Ritchie people did tend to write 'a long code'
and then check that its working (or not).  After 'The C programming
language' -- which is about 40 years -- starting any programming
enterprise without writing AND CHECKING the equivalent of "Hello
World" is just never done.

IOW you underestimate how many niggling details both of the system and
of your understanding are checked by that approach
