the problem is not assembly in the source code, , but the fact that all 
compilers deliver machine-specific code .
compile a C program on an arm processor, try to run the binary on a x86 
It will fail always.

Only languages that compile into a crossplatform format like java 
bytecode can run on all platforms.
Interpreted languages like bash and python also should work on all 

sourcecode can be platform indepent , binaries are always architecture
