The instruction sets of most contemporary, commercially available computers are designed to provide "general purpose" capabilities. In solving specific problems, the instruction sets of these computers often prove to be inefficient. With a dynamically microprogrammable machine this problem can be alleviated by letting the language processor 1) define a set of "machine" instructions better suited for the particular problem at hand and 2) generate the microprograms to interpret the newly defined instruction set.
