SAMPL (Symbolic Assembly Language) is a high-level programming language for modeling and simulating physical systems. Developed by IBM in the 1960s, it's commonly used in conjunction with the System/360 mainframe computer family. SAMPL allows engineers and scientists to express their designs using algebraic equations similar to mathematical notation. This makes it easier to translate complex computational problems directly into code without having to deal with low-level instructions. SAMPL has been largely supplanted by more modern simulation languages and tools but remains an important part of the history of computing as one of the earliest examples of domain-specific languages tailored for particular engineering tasks.
