Assembly Language

Assembly language is a low-level programming language that provides a symbolic representation of a computer's machine code. Each type of central processing unit has its own specific assembly language and so there is a one-to-one relationship between an assembly instruction and its machine code equivalent. Assembly languages are more difficult to work with than high-level languages due to their technical nature, but they allow for direct control over hardware resources and can be highly optimized for speed or size-critical applications.
