What is the difference between Machine-Level Assembly Language and Low-
Level Assembly Language?
Does anyone here know what he's asking?
There are three classic methods you can use to do assembly. The first is
the "lowest level".
1) physical switches, i.e, electrical binary - obsolete, see IMSAI on
2) raw numbers, i.e., instructions as text hexadecimal (or octal) -
obsolete for the whole world (except for Wolfgang... :-)
3) symbolic assembly, i.e., text instructions, e.g., MASM, etc.
Have we come close yet?
Rod, it is symbolic assembly that I was thinking of. Thank you very
much for the explanations.
