What is a programming language?
A programming language is a formal language used by programmers to develop
various kinds of output such as softwares and scripts by inputting a set of
1940s – 1950s
The first high-level programming language was Plankalkul, created by Konrad
Zuse between 1942 and 1945 for the purposes of engineering. The language was
initialy described in Zuse’s planned Ph.D. dissertation in 1943 and later
developed in 1945. The main features of the programming languaage was that the
functions don’t support recursion, only supports call by value, only local
variables, composite types are arrays and tuleps, contains conditional
expressions, contains for loop and a while loop and no goto.
The 1960s and 1970s were the time when most programming languages model that
we use today were invented.During this period, there was a considerable debate
regarding the usage of structured control flow structures of selection and
repetition, block structures and subroutines in contrast to using simple tests
and jumps. This debate was due to some languages not includeing a “goto” at
all, which forced structured programming on the computer.
