An ARM Cortex system cannot be compared to what Les is talking about....
I think Les means systems on the scale of PIC and AVR processors. Really 
small processors, not CISC processors marketed under a RISC flag.

For blinking a LED that is HUGE. In a PIC that would require something 
like 10 to 15 (10 bit) code words
