     3. (Computers) same as assembly language. [informal]
        [PJC]

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  assembly language \assembly language\ n.
     1. (Computers) an artificial computer language with mnemonic
        codes representing the basic machine-language instructions
        of a computer, which can be interpreted by an assembler to
        produce a computer program in machine language. Also
        informally referred to as assembler.
  
     Note: Writing a program in assembly language is very much
           simpler than writing the machine instructions in binary
           code, and the use of such a language greatly increases
           the efficiency of the process of writing computer
           programs. See also programming language, FORTRAN,
           BASIC.
