Short Code

Short Code is an early programming language used for electronic digital computers in the 1940s. The language was designed to make programming more accessible and intuitive for non-mathematicians who were beginning to utilize these early computers. Short Code's syntax directly modelled the machine code instructions of the computer, allowing users to write programs using short sequences of English words instead of numerical opcodes. It was one of the first high-level languages to be developed and it helped pave the way for subsequent more general-purpose programming languages like FORTRAN.
