Abstract: AL is a high-level programming language for manipulator control useful in industrial assembly research. This document describes the current state of the AL system now in operation at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and teaches the reader how to use it. The system consists of the AL compiler and runtime system and the source code interpreter, POINTY, which facilitates specifying representation of parts, and interactive execution of AL statements.
