The GNU MIX Development Kit (GNU MDK)[1] is a free software package for developing, running and debugging programs written in MIXAL, an assembly-like language for programming a hypothetical computer called MIX. GNU MDK is part of the GNU Project.[2]

Both MIX and MIXAL were created by mathematician and computer scientist Donald Knuth in the first volume of his textbook The Art of Computer Programming, published in 1968. The GNU MDK, published in book form in 2002, was written by theoretical physics PhD Jose Antonio Ortega Ruiz of Barcelona, Spain, and is released under the GNU General Public License, to allow and encourage users to freely share and improve the software. Current versions of MDK for different platforms are free to download from the project web site.

The MDK package consists of the following programs:
