The document is a brief but complete description of a new language invented and implemented by the authors. The language is intended to be a suitable vehicle for programs which would otherwise be written in machine language for reasons of efficiency or flexibility. It is part of a system which also includes a compiler capable of producing reasonably efficient object code and a runtime which implements the input-output and string-handling features of the language as well as a fairly elaborate storage allocator. The system automatically takes care of paging arrays and blocks from the drum if they have been so declared.
