||A high-level procedural language designed for programming
computers for real-time applications. More specifically, where
the computer is controlling the behaviour of military devices.
||One of the first languages developed for mathematical and
scientific use. It introduced a number of new concepts and has
been very influential in the design of other languages.
||A low-level language that is a notation for representing machine
code in human-readable form.
||A simple high-level language that can be used for general-purpose
computing, especially on microcomputers. Designed for beginners.
||Provides all the structure of a high-level language with certain
low-level features that do not require the programmer to use
assembly language. It is fast and portable and is the language
in which the UNIX operating system was developed.
||An object-oriented language that is a descendent of C but in
the tradition of ALGOL.
||A high-level language that is the standard for all business
||A high-level language widely used for scientific computing.
||A scripting language that is the basis of Hypercard.
||A high-level functional language with the imperative features
designed for the processing of non-numeric data. Used for
symbolic manipulation and in Artificial Intelligence.
||A graphics language used mainly for teaching children.
||A low-level language into which all high-level languages must
be translated before they can run. They are specific to
machines and are in fact a series of machine-readable
||A high-level functional language used mainly for research
||A high-level imperative language, derived from Pascal, in which
programs may be written in modular forms, i.e., built up from
independently written modules.
||A high-level imperative language descended from ALGOL, and
originally designed for teaching purposes.
||A high-level declarative language, designed for use in
||One of the first object-oriented languages, developed at Xerox
Palo Alto research Center.
