Language - High Level (Programming Language)

Card Puncher Data Processing


High Level Language means that reading and writing is really easy as it looks like regular English.

  • The return variable of a definition is not tied to a data type, it can return False of a string for instance.
  • The errors are thrown during the program runs (and not before)
  • The variable doesn't have any scope. A variable defined in the body can be use in a function without problem !

A high level is a language of generation 3.

High level means a high abstraction level. A High Level Language permits a high-level designs of what a developer wants to accomplish. A designer is interested about color and shape not about the bit flow in hardware that implements it.
