Well technically, the c language was being called a high-level language before object oriented programming even existed.... so I guess they need to reassign the levels since everybody forgot to do that 30 years ago...at the time, a high level language was just a fancy way to say it’s not assembly language... in hindsight, maybe we should reassign the c language the title “medium level” language... and all the object oriented languages the title “high level” language... would you consider that old FORTRAN class from the 1990s to be a “high level” language,, I’m amazed you can write anything useful in it,,, it’s only slightly less good the. Quick basic...also “high leveled”
