Encyclopedia > Third generation language

A third generation language (3GL) is a programming language designed to be easier for a human to understand, including things like named variables. A fragment might be:

let c = c + 2 * d

Fortran, ALGOL and COBOL are early examples of this sort of language. Most "modern" languages (BASIC, C, C++) are third generation. Most 3GLs support structured programming.

Generation X - encyclopedia article about Generation X. (3706 words)
Generation X in its conception is originally a western concept, although Japan Japan (Japanese: 日本, Nihon or Nippon) is a country on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean.
Generation Y, the coinciding generation of this time, develops a sub-culture from common feelings of isolation and helplessnes that spring from the combination of Generation X values permeating pop culture and growing up during a high divorce rate, outwardly showing itself primarily in the popularity of the musical genre Emo.
Generation X has survived a hurried childhood of divorce, latchkeys, space shuttle explosions (primarily in the United States), open classrooms, widespread political corruption, inflation and recession, post-Vietnam national malaise, environmental disaster, the Islamic Revolution (in Iran), devil-child movies, and a shift from "G" to "R" ratings (which had little effect outside the United States).
Fifth-generation programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (212 words)
A fifth-generation programming language (abbreviated 5GL) is a programming language based around solving problems using constraints given to the program, rather than using an algorithm written by a programmer.
Fifth-generation languages are used mainly in artificial intelligence research.
In the 1990s, fifth-generation languages were considered to be the wave of the future, and some predicted that they would replace all other languages for system development, with the exception of low-level languages.
