Advantages of high level languages?

One advantage is programmer efficiency. Potentially hundreds of functions and standard routines are already coded at the 'machine' level, so that a clearly written language can help the programmer create useful, powerful applications. You might have "ultimate power and control" if you write in machine language, but you'd better have some time on your hands.
