MicroProgramming Language. The first high level microprogramming language. PL/I-like syntax. Data objects are declared as one- or two- dimensional arrays of bits, or as events. Statements on the same line represent register transfers caused by one microinstruction, and are executed in parallel. For vertical machines.
