The "machine language" and "assembly language" for each CPU architecture are the lowest-level programming languages.

The "Forth language" and the "C Programming language" are perhaps the most popular non-CPU-specific low-level programming languages. They were once considered high-level programming languages, and certainly they are at a higher level than assembly language, but now they are considered low-level programming languages when compared to the much higher-level languages available today (Python, Java, C++, etc).

Low-level programming languages provide little or no abstraction from the CPU's instruction set architecture; typically they interact with the hardware directly.

What is the difference between high-level and low-level programming languages?

A programming language that is machine-independent is called a "high-level" language - this includes Java, C++, Python, etc. A programming language that is machine-dependent is called a "low-level" language. For PCs, this usually includes assembly, binary code or some proprietary languages on embedded devices.

Why c language is called middle level language?

Answer - why C is Middle Level LanguageC Programming language is called as Middle Level Language because (i) it gives or behaves as High Level Language through Functions - gives a modular programming and breakup, increased efficiency for reusability(ii)it gives access to the low level memory through Pointers. Moreover it does support the Low Level programming i.e, Assembly Language.As its a combination of these two aspects, its neither a High Level nor a Low level language but a Middle Level Language.Of note: C++ supports pointers and some basic assembly aspects. It is, however, high-level. C is 3rd generation, not due to pointers or functions, as most languages after the 1st generation include some implementation of these, but because it introduced the first (relatively speaking) aspects of object orientation (structs and enums). C++ carried on with this, leading to the "4th", which has become too varried to refer to as such. There is no such thing as a middle-level language. Machine code to BASIC to C to C++ and Java and such, C is definitively on the higher end of the programming specture.

What are the easy tips to learn programming language?

What are the five generations of programming languages?

1.First Generation Programming LanguageFirst generation of programming language refers to machine language. Machine language is lower level language which uses object code (some times also known as machine code). Object code is the combination of binary digits. These languages directly talk to hardware.2.Second Generation Programming LanguageSecond generation of languages is also low level language which is known as assembly language. Assembly languages are the interface between Machine level languages and High level languages.3.Third Generation Programming LanguageThird Generation programming languages are High level Programming languages like JAVA & C.4.Fourth Generation Programming LanguageThis is the set of current generation programming languages. These languages are similar or closer to human languages.General characteristics of 4GL are:i.Closer to human languagesii.Portableiii.Database supportiveiv.simple and requires less effort than 3GLv.Non proceduralDifferent types of 4 GL are:a. Query Generatorb. Report generatorc. Form Generatord. Application Generatore. GUI Generatorf. Relational Database Manager5.Fifth Generation Programming LanguageLanguages used for writing programs for Artificial Intelligence, Neural Network, Plasma Computing etc. come under 5GL. This is the future of programming language.

Is C a high level programming language or a low programming language?

High. Only machine code and Assembly are low level languages. The distinction most usually used to determine if a language is 'high' or 'low' is the use of a compiler. If a language requires some form of compilation or translation process to convert each written instruction into multiple machine executable instructions then it is a high-level language. If each written instruction can be directly converted to a single machine executable instruction (and usually back again) then it is low-level.

Why do you need another programming language?

We have many programming languages because no one language is perfect. Some are very good at some very specific things, but are horrible for others. When we are presented with a problem, we have a large set of programming languages in which to find an appropriate language to use.
