HiAsm is a high-level assembly language for x86 processors. It features simplified syntax and strong typing while still allowing direct access to CPU features, making it suitable for writing performant system-level software such as drivers or operating systems. HiAsm was designed as an alternative to traditional assembly languages that could take advantage of modern processor capabilities without sacrificing readability or maintainability. The language can be used with Macro Assembler, a part of MASM (Microsoft Macro Assembler), and other relevant tools in the Microsoft ecosystem.
