We also have low level language called assembly languages and machine language.   Eventually, every program must be translated into machine language that the computer understands. This translation is done by a compiler, interpreters, and assembler. When you buy software, you normally buy an executable version of program. This means that the program is already in machine language i.e it has already been compiled and assembled and it’s ready to execute.   CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD PROGRAM Accuracy: program should be sufficiently accurate to get the desired result Simplicity: program logic should be as simple and uncomplicated as possible Testability: place test points in the program Efficiency:… Read More »Program Development
