Programming Language is a kind of language which is used to develop a set of
instruction, logic, or brain of an application or program.
Example: C, C++, JAVA, Python, etc.
Types of Programming Language
There are two kinds of programming language
1. Low-level programming language or procedural programming language
2. High level or object-oriented programming language
Low-Level Programming Language
Low level assigns to code written immediately for the computer – ie. Machine Code and Assembly.
Example: C Programming
High-Level Programming Language
High-level programming languages determine that languages composing computer
instructions are in a behavior that is easily comprehensible and friendly to human language.
Example: JAVA, PYTHON, PHP, etc…
|Low-Level Programming Language||High-Level Programming|
|1. It is a machine-friendly language||1. It is a programmer-friendly language.|
|2. This is high memory efficient.||2. It is low memory efficient.|
|3. It needs an assembler for translation.||3. It needs a compiler or interpreter fora translation|
|4. It is non-portable||4.It is portable.|
|5. It is difficult to understand.||5. It is easy to understand.|
|6. It is machine-dependent.||6. It is platform-independent.|
Python is a high-level or object-oriented programming language. It is explained by
Guido Van Rossum on 20 February 1991. It relates to interpreter technology. It is case
sensitive programming language.
Why was Python named?
There is a point behind choosing the name Python. Guido van Rossum was looking out the script of a popular BBC comedy series “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”. Van Rossum wants a specific, compact, and little-bit mysterious name. So he Elected naming Python after the “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” for their Recently created programming language.
