Computer Languages,,,, The Heart of the Ultimate Machines

One of the interesting questions that strike into many heuristic minds is how computers understand & perform the tasks given to them in the language we understand? The answer is Computer Languages Programming make it possible.
Today Computer Languages are acting as a tool to make Machines Serve for Man.
Unlike Human Languages, which acts as a medium, an essentiality for Human beings to interact & communicate with others, an indispensability for humans to live in a social network by exchanging their notions, feelings & thoughts, binding people from all over the World & their thoughts into what we call Understanding, & thus help developing relationships, Computer Languages like C , C++, JAVA etc. have revolutionized the World of Computing & Programming.
Computer Languages make computer (A Machine with numerous capabilities) to do what we want them to do. They have proved what they can do, which is just evident from right from the beginning of development of Operating systems, Software development, Gaming, Electronic Devices like Mobiles, Washing Machines etc.
A Computer Language acts as an interface between humans (more specifically Programmers) & the ultimate machine (The computer).Each Computer Language has a unique way to represent a set of statements (called Program Code) written entirely in human language ( English) & the ways of programming the code are different for different Computer Language. These codes are to be written in the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) specific to a particular Computer Language which transforms programmer’s instructions into a format understandable by the computer at the hardware level.
An IDE provides an overall environment to the programmer for editing, execution, debugging of program code & other facilities like developing program based applications.
A Large number of computer applications are built in different languages which fulfil different purposes. Not only computer applications but electronic devices too can’t work without implementations of program (in a specific language) through microprogramming (at micro level) & hardwired programming (via hardware devices like logic gates).
Some of the Earlier Programming Languages are BASIC, COBOL, LISP, PROLOG, PYTHON, PERL etc. The eminent & most widely used Computer Programming Languages today are C, C++, JAVA, VB.NET, ASP.NET, C# etc.
More of their capabilities are still to be explored.

    really nice thought about computer languages .. But to clarify . ASP.Net is not a programming language but a framework or technology .

  was actually developed as a language with graeter facilities such as Intellegent Sensing,,,but .net framework is an indispensible bench which supports .net based applications.
