re: Is C still a high level language? VIEW POST


Depends on from which direction you are looking.

If you are looking from above (Javascript, Java, Python, etc.), it's low level.

If you are looking from below (machine code, assembly, etc.), it's high level.



So it's mid level or old high level.



I agree with your point of view - machine code and assembly are definitely lower level than C while Java, Javascript, Perl, and Python are higher level. I will say Pascal is at the same level as C.

I agree, Pascal (and probably Fortran) are on the same level as C.
