High-Level Language
  • A computer programming language that does not reflect the structure of any one given computer or that of any one given class of computers. A statement in a high-level language must be interpreted and corresponding intermediate, assembly, or machine language statements compiled for use by a computer. Note: Ada(r) is the DoD high-level language. FORTRAN, BASIC, C, and COBOL are common commercial high-level languages. See also Ada(r), assembly language, compile, computer, computer language, computer-oriented language, language, level, machine language.
