Transaction Application Language

Transaction Application Language (TAL) is a programming language used for developing business applications that interact with databases and process transactions. It was developed by Tandem Computers, Inc., which later became part of Compaq and is now part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. TAL supports structured programming constructs and has built-in database management capabilities, making it well-suited for writing transaction processing applications on fault-tolerant systems like those manufactured by Tandem/Compaq/HP. Because of its associations with these mainframe-like environments, the use of TAL has declined significantly as businesses have transitioned to more modern distributed computing platforms.
