Describe The Three Basic Types Of Programming Languages

INTRODUCTION Structured programming is one of the several different ways in which a programming language can be constructed. "It was originally introduced as a means of getting away from the 'spaghetti' code that was used in the early days and to provide some means by which programmers could more easily follow code written by other programmers." (Hendren, 1998) Structured programming is a procedure-oriented method of designing and coding a program. At a low level, structured programs are composed...

History of Programming Languages

History of Programming Languages To date, there have been two conferences focusing on programming languages. The Special Interest Group on Programming Languages (SIGPLAN) of the Association for Computing Machinery sponsored two "History of Programming Languages (HOPL)" conferences. The first of these took place in Los Angeles in 1978, and focused on thirteen early languages: ALGOL, APL, APT, BASIC, COBOL, FORTRAN, GPSS, JOSS, JOVIAL, LISP, PL/I, SIMULA, and SNOBOL. The prospectus for the first...

Programming Language and Java

world of Java programming by taking you through the three basic steps required to get a simple program running. The Java system is a collection of applications not unlike any of the other applications that you are accustomed to using (such as your word processor, e-mail program, or internet browser). As with any application, you need to be sure that Java is properly installed on your computer. You also need an editor and a terminal application. Here are system specific instructions for three popular home...

The Evolution of Computer Programming Languages

Many would think that computer programming is a recent invention but the idea behind writing instructions for a machine to follow then has been around for over a century. Starting from Charles Babbage’s steam driven machine named the Analytical Engine back in 1834. Unlike the simple calculating machines of that time that could perform only a single function, Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine could perform a variety of tasks. This idea caught the attention of Ada Lovelace, a mathematician and daughter...

Programming language generations

Programming language generations The terms "first generation" and "second generation" programming language were not used prior to the coining of the term "third-generation"; none of these three terms are mentioned in early compendiums of programming languages. The introduction of a third generation of computer technology coincided with the creation of a new generation of programming languages. The marketing for this generational shift in machines correlated with several important changes in what...

Evolution of Programming Languages

Evolution of Programming Languages Generations Most books and articles on history of programming languages tend to discuss languages in term of generations.This is useful arrangement for classifying languages by age.I agree that whatever a few of we ‘more mature’ software engineers get together, we cannot ever seem to agree on wht constitutes the generation of computer languages.We know that Formula Translation (FORTRAN) was probably a first-generation languges.Does that make FORTRAN 77 and WatFor...

Programming Language (Pl1)

Summary of PL/1 (Programming Languages 1) History (Programming Language 1) A high-level IBM programming language introduced in 1964 with the System/360 series, developed by George Radin of IBM in 1964. Originally named (NPL) and Fortran VI. It was designed to combine features of and eventually supplant COBOL and FORTRAN, which never happened. A PL/I program is made up of procedures (modules) that can be compiled independently. There is always a main procedure and zero or more additional ones....

A Comparison Programming Languages

computer programmer has many languages to choose from, but what's the difference between them? What are these languages used for? How can we categorize them in useful ways? These days, programming languages are becoming more and more general and all-purpose, but they still have their specializations, and each language has its disadvantages and advantages. Languages can generally be divided into a few basic types, though many languages support more than one programming style. This following list...

Programming Languages

A high-level programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs in the mid 1970s. Although originally designed as a systems programming language, C has proved to be a powerful and flexible language that can be used for a variety of applications, from business programs to engineering. C is particularly a popular language for personal computer programmers because it is relatively small - it requires less memory than other languages. The first major program written in C was the UNIX operating...
