Eniac Short Code

ENIAC Short Code, also known as ENIAC Programming System (EPS), was one of the first programming systems designed for the electronic computer ENIAC. It was developed in 1946 by John von Neumann and others. The system used a combination of English words, mathematical symbols, and abbreviations to represent operations and data. The language provided an easier way to program the massive calculator than using machine code directly through switches and plugboards, allowing users to feed instructions into it without physically reconfiguring its hardware each time. Although not a high-level language by modern standards — it primarily served as an intermediary between low-level circuitry coding on one hand and later programming languages like FORTRAN or COBOL on the other — EPS helped establish principles that contributed to the development of more advanced programming tools still in use today.
