A programming language is a set of commands, instructions, and other syntax use to create a software program. Languages that programmers use to write code are called “high-level languages.” This code can be compiled into a “low-level language,” which is recognized directly by the computer hardware.
Examples of high-level languages include C++, Java, Perl, and PHP.
Low-level languages include assembly and machine languages.
A programming language is typically divided into two elements: syntax and semantics. Learning a programming language is something that you do in order to communicate with a machine. It is like a first step towards the field of programming and software development.
