 for Register Transfer Language
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Register Transfer Language
     (RTL) 1. A kind of hardware description language (HDL) used
     in describing the registers of a computer or digital
     electronic system, and the way in which data is transferred
     between them.
     2.  An intermediate code for a machine with an infinite number
     of registers, used for machine-independent optimisation.
     RTL was developed by Chris Fraser  and
     J. Davidson  at the University of Arizona
     in the early 1980s.  RTL is used by the GNU C compiler,
     gcc and by Davidson's VPCC (Very Portable C compiler).
