Types of Software Systems
Computers are the brain of new world that belong humanity. People save up time and
obtain some functions with computers. In time, the future seen on computers and people
pursue them. At first, they just consist of a lot of pieces electronic circuits to operate some
function such as addition and subtraction. Electronic circuits in other words hardware systems
are taken on meaning with software systems to solve more complicated function. Computer
software systems are divided into three major categories: system software, programming
software and application software.
The initial section about software systems refers to system software. System
software is substratum point on computer system which provide major actions. Other software
systems base system software to command their functions. System software includes device
drivers, operating systems and servers. Operating systems with other words collection of
software resource common services for computer programs. They are the vital system on
computer and provide database to application softwares. Device drivers which manage a
particular kind of device, are computer program. Considering microphones that attached to
computers, they need software to recognise themselves to operating systems. Servers is the
system software that relate computers to each others. Internet is formed with server systems.
Thus, information is accessible from person to person.
The second part of software systems is about programming software.
Programming software include tools that is used by software developers, such as create,
debug, maintain, or otherwise support other programs and applications. Computer need
compiler which is set of programs for transforming source code into another computer
programming language. This transformation create an executable program. In addition,
computer debug and test from controller system to avoid...
