Abstract

Languages are means of communication—verbal or written—between people. Whether they are natural or artificial, they are made of terms and have rules on how to use them to perform the task of communicating. Programming languages are means of communication with a computer. The communication with a computer is a written communication; basically, the developer defines some instructions to be executed, communicates them through an intermediary to the computer, and if the computer understands them, performs the set of actions, and depending on the application type, some sort of reply is returned to the developer.
