From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  assembly language
  assembly code
      (Or "assembly code") A symbolic representation of
     the machine language of a specific processor.  Assembly
     language is converted to machine code by an assembler.
     Usually, each line of assembly code produces one machine
     instruction, though the use of macros is common.
     Programming in assembly language is slow and error-prone but
     is the only way to squeeze every last bit of performance out
     of the hardware.
     Filename+extension:+.s+({Unix">Filename extension: .s ({Unix), .asm ({CP/M} and others).
     See also second generation language.
