CONCEPT IN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE:

A Programming Language is used to design and describe a set of instructions and computations to be executed by a computer. To do programming, one should have knowledge of i) a particular programming language ii) algorithm to solve the problem. An algorithm is finite number of steps, which perform some computation on the input and produce the desired output in a finite amount of time. Once an algorithm is chosen, the next step for a solution using a computer would be to write a program using the algorithm.  A program is defined as a collection of Statements or Sentences written in a particular programming language. Further, to obtain the output from a Program, it is required to be compiled or interpreted so that the computer can understand it.
