high-level language

URL copied Share URL
  1. [programming] A programming language that uses keywords and statements that are similar to expressions in human language or mathematics and is, therefore, easier for people to comprehend and use. A high-level language is named for the high level of abstraction it affords developers over low-level processor functions such as memory access and register storage, meaning such operations do not demand the developer's attention.
