The (often called Linoleum or simply Lino) is an unstructured, untyped, procedural programming language and a cross-platform assembler developed by Italian programmer Alessandro Ghignola beginning in 2001. The initials stand for Low-level INterfaced OverLanguage for Extremely Universal Machine-coding. The programming language (hereafter referred to as Lino) is easier to learn than assembly languages. The Lino assembler is designed to assemble executable code for different CPU without requiring changes to the source code.


Lino is intended for writing general-purpose programs, especially when portability, execution speed, and module size are critical to the application's success. These traits are especially important in fields of study that demand performance-intensive programs. Examples of such fields (in which Lino is actually being used) include fractals, mathematics (such as an implementation of fast Fourier transform), and ray tracing, to name a few.

This increased performance is achieved by Lino's nearly one-to-one ratio between Lino instructions and CPU instructions. That is, most instructions in Lino can be executed in one machine cycle, due to the way the language is set up. This gives a skilled programmer increased control over the computer, allowing for further optimization and tighter loops.

Although Lino is a relatively new language, several useful programs are already being written in it. These programs, most of which are available...
