I'm reading (well, writing...) about the FLOW language and it mentions the "MICRO 800 assembler". This was in the early 1970s, and I can't imagine what this might be. The context suggests it was on the Nova. Anyone familiar with this?

  • Nova Assembler code was just called DG Assembler - didn't have a name like Micro800. – cup Nov 5 '19 at 19:35
  • I am thinking this is perhaps a 3rd party assembler for the Nova. But it could be some other similar machine like a PDP-8 or maybe an HP 2100. – Maury Markowitz Nov 5 '19 at 21:30
  • The other alternative is microprogramming but that was only available on the eclipse range: not the novas and the eclipses only came out in the mid 80s. – cup Nov 5 '19 at 22:57
