Section 7.5 The Little Computer - Assembly

The Little Computer supports an assembly language that can make it easier for humans to write and read programs. In addition to replacing numeric commands like “1XX” or “902” with abbreviated English commands like “ADD” or “OUT”, Little Computer assembly allows us to think at a slightly more abstract level. Instead of remembering specific memory addresses so we can say “add the value from location 10”, we can name memory locations and then say things like “add X”. This video introduces it:
