Computers only understand machine language -- a language of numbers that is impractical, if not impossible, for most humans to understand. Machine language consists of binary digits or bits, which come in the form of zeros and ones. To program for a computer, software developers use compilers. The programmers write programs in a high-level programming language that uses names for operations and data. A compiler is software that converts programs from the high-level language into machine language.
