Tiny is a statically typed programming language, procedural, imperative and structured. It was designed at the Australian National University to be compiled for educational purposes, particularly as an example in compiler construction classes. Tiny is used to illustrate concepts without getting into the complexities of larger languages, making it easy to understand and implement simple compilers or interpreters for it from scratch. Since its introduction in 1990s, Tiny has been used widely in academia as an instructional tool for demonstrating how programs are parsed and executed at the machine level.
