In computer programming, assembly language, also known asasm, is any programming language where there is a strong correspondence between the machine instructions and the target language's machine code. Assembly language comes with the additional feature of having type information and type checking at the same time. Assembly language is used to communicate

with assembler or compiler to translate the source code into the target language. This helps the programmer by making it possible to change the generated output to a desired form. Assembly language is used in hardware and software programs for producing executable files, firmware images, shared libraries and scripts. Assembly language usually compiles into machine code that can be executed in an embedded system.

A. L. Micallef, an Italian Catholic priest, developed an assembly language called Nacional. In this assembly language there were no types nor function names and the only operators were the punctuation marks. This was designed for a working class without much educational background. It is said that Pope Sixtus IV wanted a language that all people could understand because everyone in the church would benefit from its use. It was to conform to the way in which people were accustomed to doing business in Italy.

The use of Nacional spread throughout the Italian political and cultural life, until it came back into the Italian Renaissance era. It was used in religious writings, to commemorate battles and to record the history of noble families. It was not, however, during this time period that assembly line production became notable. In the late Renaissance era the Italian working class began using machines to manufacture small metal items that they sold in their markets. As technology advanced, the assembly-line production moved into higher levels of complexity. The invention of the modern assembly line was contributed to Alessio Moncelli, a tailor who invented a machine to perform many of the assembly operations that previously had to be done by hand.
