Assembly

Assembly language is a low-level programming language that uses mnemonic codes and symbols to represent individual CPU instructions. It provides direct control over hardware resources and is specific to the computer's architecture. Assembly code must be translated into machine code by an assembler before it can be executed on the target processor. Despite being more difficult to write than higher-level languages due to requiring intimate knowledge of a computer's architecture, assembly language offers programmers precise control over system resources, making it useful for device drivers, real-time systems, and other applications where performance optimization at the hardware level is critical.
