If the programmers, however, do not agree to implement the said language or if they have found a better programming language, the same as in Aramaic or Latin, the programming language will eventually die and become useless.
If there are existing similarities between existing program languages, they also have their corresponding differences. They differ from their spoken languages in several ways.
Although there are a few non-English programming languages that exist like Arabic or Hindi languages, these are not popular and aren’t widely used.
A Comparison Of High-Level And Low-Level Programming Languages
A way to categorize programming languages is through high-level or low-level. The low-level languages communicate directly with the central processing unit or the CPU. They can perform very basic commands but are generally difficult to read and comprehend. An example of a low-level language is the machine code. The machine code utilizes only two numbers – 0 and 1. The Assembly language is another low-level language that uses keywords to do basic commands including reading data, storing data, and moving data.
On the contrary, high-level programming languages utilize natural language, which is why it is easier for us to read and write. When a code is written using a high-level language, such as C++, Ruby, or Python, a translator or compiler interprets the high-level language into a low-level code in a way that a computer understands.
Differentiating Compiled Codes And Interpreted Codes
As mentioned above, high-level languages need to be changed to low-level programming languages with the use of a translator or compiler, depending on the type of language. Translated languages are considered more convenient than compiled languages, as compiled languages perform faster than translated or interpreted languages.
But this advantage of speed in using compiled languages is slowly losing its popularity and importance, as nowadays there are a lot of improved processors allow for better performance and make differences between the compiled and the translated languages insignificant.
Programming For Websites
Software that is accessible on websites is slowly gaining more popularity compared to the installed software. I bet you can’t even remember when you last downloaded software from your computer. Big names on the Internet like YouTube and Netflix have now replaced Winamp and Windows Media Player. These apps enable you to watch movies and listen to music online more easily.
Additionally, the usually-installed word processors and spreadsheets like Microsoft Word and Excel are way past their famous years and are giving way to web software like Google sheets and Google Docs. The huge company is even launching its new laptops known as Chromebooks and apparently, these do not contain any installed software. Instead, these computers rely solely on web software for all its functionality.
