Code Language

A code or programming language is a language specifically created to relay instructions to a computer. The codes in these languages are used to develop computer programs that can manipulate or control a machine’s behavior as well as to precisely express algorithms. Two components make up a programming language specifically syntax and semantics.

A programming language is known as a detail for encoding programs which are algorithm or computation specifications. All existing programming languages have some primal building blocks for data description and the transformations or processes applied to them. Primitive building blocks can be defined by semantic and syntactic rules that describe their meaning and structure.

The surface form of a programming language’s surface is known as syntax. A majority of programming languages are totally textual. They make use of text sequences including punctuations, numbers, and words. This is a normal language in the digital concept. Conversely, there are other programming languages that are naturally graphical making use of relationships with symbols that specify a certain program.

Semantics on the other hand refers to language’s meaning in contrast to the syntax or form. It is categorized into static semantics and dynamic semantics with the former defining a valid text’s structure which are difficult to express in standard syntax and the latter defining when can constructs of a language produce a certain program behavior.
