XPL is a high-level programming language for manipulating bit strings. It was created as part of the XPL0 compiler system designed for educational use in the 1970s at Wirth's Institut für Informatik. XPL serves as an intermediate language between higher-level languages (like Pascal) and machine code, providing an environment where experimenters can explore various aspects of compiler design and optimization techniques without dealing with complexities of real-world platforms. True to its era, it also offered insights into developing efficient software on early computer systems with limited resources. Although no longer widely used, XPL remains relevant in understanding the evolution of programming languages and their associated tools.
