Best Programming Languages

Because typewriter or assembly language software was so difficult and confusing, people developed additional languages that are more like human languages, with names such as Fortran, Basic and Pascal. By making programming languages more closely resemble common human languages, the developers of these languages beginning wanted to make the program easier to write and edit later. A high level of the first programming language was FORTRAN (which is the standard for Formula Translator).

FORTRAN was designed specifically for the numerical calculations. Another early high-level language was COBOL (Common Business-Oriented Language), which was scheduled for processing business data.

Because every language has a specific purpose, most people will not use FORTRAN or COBOL to write video games, operating systems or word processing (though you can if you really want). Because the program was still too difficult for many people, early computer scientists produced both Pascal and basic to teach people programming. BASIC - Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code - was scheduled to teach beginners how to program. Beginners can start studying for programming with C, but the complexity of C may discourage people too soon.

Compared with Pascal, BASIC is less organic, which makes writing a BASIC program convenient, but makes reading and understanding large BASIC programs much more difficult. Pascal is more organized and forces you to plan your program before writing, as to whether first plan a trip before leaving home.

This planning could take longer, but your program and your trip will be more prepared than if you rush to write the program immediately, which can be as broken as it appears in London in the middle of the night without hotel reservations.
