  programming language. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
All computers operate by following machine language programs, a long sequence of instructions called machine code that is addressed to the hardware of the computer and is written in binary notation (see numeration), which uses only the digits 1 and 0.
PL/1 [Programming Language 1], developed in the late 1960s by the IBM Corp., and ADA [for Ada Augusta, countess of Lovelace, biographer of Charles Babbage], developed in 1981 by the U.S. Dept. of Defense, are designed for both business and scientific use.
With some languages, such as C or Pascal, the program is turned into a separate machine language program by a compiler, which functions much as an assembler does.

 Programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Programming languages, like human languages, are defined through the use of syntactic and semantic rules, to determine structure and meaning respectively.
Programming languages are used to facilitate communication about the task of organizing and manipulating information, and to express algorithms precisely.
Programming language syntax is usually defined using a combination of regular expressions (for lexical structure) and Backus-Naur Form (for grammatical structure).

 What is programming language? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Each language has a unique set of keywords (words that it understands) and a special syntax for organizing program instructions.
High-level programming languages, while simple compared to human languages, are more complex than the languages the computer actually understands, called machine languages.
Assembly languages are similar to machine languages, but they are much easier to program in because they allow a programmer to substitute names for numbers.

The designers of these languages are domain experts in the field of programming, and thus, are not able to fully appreciate the problems faced by a novice programmer.
As an example, at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (the author's undergraduate school), the introductory programming language used to be Pascal until the mid-1990s.
The C programming language has had an interesting history, and has come to be known as the language of "hackers." The use of C in an introductory course has attracted a lot of controversy and there are compelling arguments both for and against it [7].

The program participants unanimously agreed that a top-down, structured methodology was the proper design approach for the Space Shuttle onboard software; however, the use of a high-order language and the selection of an operating system approach were subjects of significant controversy.
The NASA had contracted for the development of HAL/S, a high-order language tailored specifically for aerospace avionics applications, but the capability of it, or any other high-order language, to produce code with size, efficiency, and speed comparable to those of an assembly language program was questioned.

The promise of this is that UML is a higher level language and thus more productive than current programming languages.
Most people I know don't program for a living in the language they consider to be the most productive.

 Programming language concepts
Computer Science 302 deals with programming languages generally, considered as formal, executable notations for expressing algorithms: their syntactic structures, the ``virtual machines'' or models of computation that they implicitly rely on, the data values and structures that they support, and the semantics of the various constructions from which programs are built.
The textbooks for the course are Essentials of programming languages, second edition, by Daniel P. Friedman, Mitchell Wand, and Christopher T. Haynes (Cambridge, Massachusetts: The MIT Press, 2000), ISBN 0-262-06217-8, and Concepts in programming languages, by John Mitchell (Cambridge, United Kingdom: Cambridge University Press, 2003), ISBN 0-521-78098-5.

 Programming Language Categories
There is a certain set of programming fields/categories that I believe are currently distinct enough to have an independent programming language to represent them.
The most basic need of for scripting languages is one which is simple to use because it will be used by those with a minimum of programming knowledge or in situations where cranking out code which does the job is all the matters.
And these languages while not as widely used today are in many ways so distinct from others that it is important to keep there legacy alive in the hopes that they may positively influence more common languages.

The Java Programming Language is a general-purpose, concurrent, strongly typed, class-based object-oriented language.
This leads to a "declarative" programming style where the programmer says what should be done and tools emit the code to do it.
Evaluating assertions at runtime to confirm their validity is one of the most powerful tools for improving code quality, as it quickly uncovers the programmer's misconceptions concerning a program's behavior.
