High level assembler for the Stantec Zebra

from Smillie
"The structure of the Normal (machine) Code is based on a novel idea. Single letters specify basic operations such as add, test, store; but there are 15 such letters (called function digits) and these may be used in any combination so that the programmer may construct thousands of different instructions. It is possible to instruct the machine to add, transfer, shift, modify and test "all at the same time", thus making the effective speed of operation of the computer greater than the intrinsic electronic speed would suggest. "
