Programming language

language is a formal language comprising a set of strings that various kinds of machine code output. languages are one kind of  language, and are used in computer programming to implement algorithms.

Most languages consist of instructions for computers. There are programmable machines that use a set of specific instructions, rather than general programming languages. Since the early 1800s, programs have been used to direct the behavior of machines such as Jacquard looms,  boxes and player pianos. The programs for these machines (such as a player piano's scrolls) did not different behavior in response to different inputs or conditions.
