Assembler Simplified With
Algebraic Assembly Language

TERSE represents a whole new concept in low-level programming and is the first real advance in assembly language programming since the invention of the Macro Assembler.

TERSE is an x86 specific programming language compatible with the entire processor family from the 8088 through the Pentium 4 and beyond. It is a machine-level language that gives you all of the control available in assembly language with the ease-of-use and the look-and-feel of a high-level language like C.

TERSE is a very mature language. Conceived in 1986, implemented in 1987, proven in real world applications for over a decade, and used by Fortune 250 corporations, universities, and programmers on six continents since 1996! TERSE has virtually replaced assembly language for time and/or space critical applications in embedded x86 based and PC applications. For an overview of the language read this article written for Dr. Dobb's Journal.
