In this tutorial, we will learn about High-Level Languages and some examples. Low-level languages are machine-dependent and require extensive knowledge of the
High-level language use English-like syntax, which is easy to understand and to solve any problem. High-level languages are computer-independent and programming becomes easy for programmers.
Some examples of High-level languages are as follows:
BASIC (Beginners’ All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) is a high-level programming language. It is easy to learn the language. It was mainly used in microcomputers.
Pascal is a high-level programming language. It is mostly used for teaching purposes.
FORTRAN is a fusion of two English words FORmula TRANSlation. FORTRAN is a high-level programming language developed for solving mathematical and scientific problems. FORTRAN is popular among the scientific community.
COBOL(Common Business-Oriented language) is a standard high-level language used
for commercial applications.
C is a high-level, structured programming language used for all purposes. C has originally created for programming the UNIX operating system. It can be used for system programming, scientific applications, commercial applications, developing games, etc.
C++ is an object-oriented programming language used for general purposes. Most of the C++ syntax was derived from the C language.
