<language> (Or "assembly code") A symbolic representation of the machine
language of a specific processor. Assembly language is converted to machine code
by an assembler. Usually, each line of assembly code produces one machine
instruction, though the use of macros is common.
Programming in assembly language is slow and error-prone but is the only way to
squeeze every last bit of performance out of the hardware.
Filename extension: .s (Unix), .asm (CP/M and others).
See also second generation language.
