procedural language

Definitions

Computing

Electronics

  • A programming language, such as C or FORTRAN, which requires specific statements, instructions, or subroutines which need to be executed in a specified sequence. Such a language emphasizes how something must be carried out, as opposed to what needs to be done, as would be the case with a non-procedural language.
