True or False, with Justification: " The compiler writer is intimately aware of the details of the processor implementation?"

False. Compilers generate machine-neutral code. This is then (usually) passed to an assembler or machine-code generator. In modern systems, the code is compiled to ELF (Executable and Linkable Format) code, which the linker converts to the appropriate system machine code when generating the executable image.
