programming includes all
those activities that are involved in creating and
maintaining the source code,
viz., designing, writing,
testing and debugging the
source code of any given
program. A computer program is a set of
instructions that are
developed and written in such
a way that it gets the
computer to perform a
specific set of tasks. These instructions, specifications and
performance requirements,
that are written to form a
program, constitute of the
source code of the program.
That, I suppose, gives a brief idea on what computer
programs and computer
programming is all about.
Now, let's proceed towards
understanding languages in a
little detail. Programming Languages A programming language is a
description, measurement or
expression of processes or
algorithms which includes
digital as well as non digital
data that can be performed by computing machines.
Programming languages are
created for a large number of
purposes but the basic logic
behind their creation is
common - they serve to control and regulate the
behavior and performance of
such computing machines
with regards to their desired
output. All programming
languages have two basic components - syntax and
semantics. The syntax is the
form or arrangement of
symbols and characters typical
to a particular language.
Semantics deal with the meaning that a set of
characters convey when
arranged in a particular way.
For instance, let's look at a
couple of simple programming
languages examples to get an idea of syntax and semantics
with relation to
programming. Simple C++ Program
Example Syntax:
using namespace std;
int main()
cout < "Good Morning!\n"; return 0;
Good Morning! Simple COBOL Program
Example Syntax:
DISPLAY "Good Morning".
  Types of Programming
 There are two basic
types of programming
languages based upon the
level of abstraction from the
architecture of the computer's
instruction set. These two types of programming
languages are high level
language and low-level
language. High level languages
are farthest in similarity from
machine syntaxes and most of these languages make use of
real world language elements.
As such, high level languages
are more user-friendly and
offer larger portability across
various platforms. These languages are characterized by
the conspicuous visible
absence of CPU processing
details such as scope
management and models for
memory access. In order for the computing machine to
understand and process the
inputs of the user, conveyed
through high level language,
such languages usually
undergo any of the three types of programs -
interpreters, compilers or
translators - to get converted
into an executable form.
Common examples of high
level language are Java, C and C++. Low level languages are
the closest in form to the
computer's internal machine
code and are, therefore, easily
and readily executed by the
computer without having to involve intermediary
conveying programs like
translators, compilers and
interpreters. 1GL and 2GL are

examples of common
programming languages of this category. Computer Programming Languages: List by Category There are over 700
programming languages that
have been developed till date!
Let's look at a categorized list of programming languages that includes some of the
most prominent and popular
