Medium-Level Language (MLL)

Definition - What does Medium-Level Language (MLL) mean?

Medium-level language (MLL) is a computer programming language that interacts with the abstraction layer of a computer system. Medium-level language serves as the bridge between the raw hardware and programming layer of a computer system.

Medium-level language is also known as intermediate programming language and pseudo language.

Techopedia explains Medium-Level Language (MLL)

Medium-level language is mainly an output of the programming source code written in a higher-level language. It is designed to improve the translated code before it is executed by the processor. The improvement process helps to adjust the source code in accordance with the computational framework of the target machine.

The source code of the medium-level language is not directly executable by the CPU as it’s an intermediate step before being converted into machine code. However, after it's analyzed by the primary software program, the medium-level language is interpreted into machine code for execution.

C intermediate language and Java byte code are some examples of medium-level language.
