The most well known form of a compiler is one that translates a high level language like C into the native assembly language of a machine so that it can be executed. And of course there are compilers for other languages like C++, Java, C#, and Rust, and many. Higher-level languages are the most complex to support in a compiler/interpreter, not only because they increase the level of abstraction between the source code and the resulting machine code, but because increased complexity is required to formalize those abstract structures. May 17,  · High level programs require compilers/interpreters to translate source code to machine language. We can compile the source code written in high level language to multiple machine languages. Thus, they are machine independent language. Today almost all programs are developed using a high level programming language.

High-Level Languages and Compilers With the advent of assembly languages, computer usage increased rapidly, but programmers still had to use numerous instructions to accomplish even the simplest tasks. To speed the programming process, high-level languages were developed in which single statements could be written to accomplish substantial tasks. Two kinds of programs process high-level languages into low-level languages: interpreters and compilers. An interpreter reads a high-level program and executes it, meaning that it does what the program says. It processes the program a little at a time, alternately reading lines and performing computations. Watson, Des () High level languages and their compilers. International Computer Science Series.

Compiled Programs. Compilers are computer programs that translate a high-level programming language to a low-level programming language. The product of a compiler is an executable file, which is made of instructions encoded in a specific machine code.
