Highlevel, or third-generation, languages were invented to get around this problem. High-level languages often use words that are more like the English language—for example, LIST, PRINT, OPEN, and so on—as commands that represent a sequence of tens, or even hundreds, of machine-language instructions. The commands are entered from the keyboard or from a program in memory or in a storage device, and they are intercepted by a program that translates them into machine-language instructions. Software writers (or programmers) use different languages, depending on the problem they are working to solve.

These languages are essentially sequences of commands in the form of algorithms (an explicit set of instructions). indd 18 5/18/10 4:22:27 PM Industry History 19 INTERVIEW The Past Shaping the Future Bill Bil ll Weiss Weiiss Worldwide technical community director mmun nity d irector for Microsoft Services How long have you been in n this is field?

As computers became smaller and more mainstream, the speed with which they could carry out their tasks improved as well. Everything a computer does is based on one thing: determining if a switch, or “gate,” is open or closed (often signaled using the numbers 0 and 1). This is the essence of the binary system that underlies all of modern computing, and it is the speed at which computers perform this simple act that makes them so amazing. A key factor in a computer’s speed is its clock—a timing device that sends rapid pulses to the components to synchronize and pace them.
