BASIC                     Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code is a General Purpose, procedural programming language. It was                                             originally designed to be simple enough for beginners to learn.

 FORTRAN           FORmula TRANslator is a procedural language designed for programming complex mathematical algorithms.


COBOL                Common Business Oriented I anguage is a procedural language designed for business applications.


Pascal                   Pascal is a structured, general-purpose, procedural language designed primarily for teaching programming.


C                          C is a structured, general-purpose, procedural language developed at Bell Laboratories.


C++                      Based on the C language, C++ offers object-oriented features not found in C. C++ was also invented at Bell Laboratories.


C#                        Pronounced “C sharp." It is a language invented by Microsoft for developing applications based on the Microsoft, NET                                     platform.
