Low-Level Language - definition(s)

low-level language - [programming] A programming language that uses keywords and statements that are little more complex than the ones and zeros of machine language. Low-level language technically includes machine language, but more commonly refers to an assembly language that uses symbols to make machine instructions easier for programmers to read and understand. Each statement in assembly language represents a single command to the processor, affording the developer only a low level of abstraction in regard to mundane functions such as memory access and register storage, meaning such operations demand the developer's close attention.
