Programming language: language or translator?

Filed under: Uncategorized — mahbub @ 2:24 pm

This view towards the language came to my mind today while I was attending a rather boring class on an interesting topic. I had to spend last two days doing C++ coding and was thinking about it in the class. What is programming language?

When you write something in assembly language what happens? The compiler translates it into machine code and its excuted in the machine. The same notion is applied everywhere. So essentially every compiler is a translator, a mapping between two sets of instruction. I think YACC and other parser tool came out of this concept. Gotta read something on these.
