  • higher-order language

    A programming language that requires little knowledge of the computer on which a program will run, can be translated into several different machine languages, allows symbolic naming of operations and addresses, provides features designed to facilitate expression of data structures and program logic, and usually results in several machine instructions for each program statement. Examples include Ada, BASIC, C, C++, COBOL, FORTRAN, PASCAL, and ALGOL. Also called Third Generation Language (3GL).
