I am creating a list of the things that most computers can do (in an
assembly language program), but you can't do them in C.

/* ---------- */

You left out the most obvious one: drop in in-line object code. Everyone
knows that you should use C as you would an assembly language, and so you
should be able to say
	.word   23
	.word   343
in the middle of the program, thus giving some object code to be included
at that point :-)

Come off it! "C" is NOT PL/360, and let's not try to make it into such.
