The subject paper1 concludes that number of faults per line of code is independent of whether Assembly language or a high order language (HOL) is used, contrary to previously published results by the author of this correspondence. However, the subject paper contains some technical errors and uses erroneous data. An explanation of the source of the erroneous data is given. Also, previously published information by the author of this correspondence on average number of operators plus operands per line of Assembly language code is corrected.
