Do you really know about computer program?

Elements of a program:

  1. Input: Getting data and commands into the computer.
  2. Output: Getting your result out of the computer.
  3. Looping and conditionals: Testing to see if a condition is true or false, and cycling through a set of instructions until conditions is met.
  4. Mathematical operations(arithmetic operations): Performing mathematical calculations on your data.
  5. Variables and data structure: Storing information, which may change over time.

Characteristics of a programming language-

  • A programming language must be simple, easy to learn and use, have good readability, and be human recognizable.
  • Abstraction is a must-have Characteristics for a programming language in which the ability to define the complex structure and then its degree of usability comes.
  • A portable programming language is always preferred.
  • Programming language’s efficiency must be high so that it can be easily converted into a machine code and executed consumes little space in memory.
  • A programming language should be well structured and documented so that it is suitable for application development.
  • Necessary tools for the development, debugging, testing, maintenance of a program must be provided by a programming language.
  • A programming language should provide a single environment known as Integrated Development Environment(IDE).
  • A programming language must be consistent in terms of syntax and semantics.
