ZOWIE is a machine-like language in which all operations including structured control flow are memory-mapped. Control flow is structured in the sense of structured programming — the programmer never deals with gotos, or offsets or labels of any kind. Instead, the program writes to a memory location to mark the beginning or end of a loop or conditional.
