High Level Language

A computer programming term.

A high level computer language is designed to be very person-friendly - with a grammar that is easily understood and has powerful set of built-in functions to handle and present data.

A high level language makes programming relatively quick and efficient. Examples of high level languages include C, C++, Pascal, Fortran, BASIC, Java, Lisp, Smalltalk.

The opposite of a high level language is machine or assembly language which are much more awkward to program with as every slightly complicated operation has to be hand-coded.
