Higher Ground — Part I, II and III

Three-Part Discussion About What Users and Developers Call Higher-Level Languages and How They Vary in Performance and Suitability

Higher Ground—Part I

Part I discusses what users and developers call higher-level languages and how they vary in performance and suitability.

Higher Ground—Part II

Part II continues the discussion onwhat users and developers call higher-level programming languages and how they vary in performance and suitability. High-level control languages help speed development cycles, but a preferred language for machine control hasn’t emerged

Higher Ground—Part III

This is the final part of our three-part discussion. Languages like ladder logic are more common, but higher-level languages can supervise machine controls and interface with a C-based OS.


MBFSprechen Sie Python?
Well, maybe not Python, but how do you define a higher-level language? Is it based on how much the programmer is isolated from the actual code? Is it about a more-powerful control capability? Discuss at ControlDesign.com/language.
