Machine language

Published in the Random group
This question is a bit strange. We have different types of programming languages like structrued, unstructured, scripting languages and many more. The question is can we classify 'Machine language' as any type? Or is there any type specified for machined language? Just like we say C++ is an Object Oriented Programing Language. Can we associate machine language with any type? Waiting for Computer Scientists out there to help.

Well, as far as I know, a machine language only comprises binary numbers i.e. 1s and 0s. A machine language is only understood by a machine i.e. computer. Classification of computer programming languages is only for we humanbeings for our better understanding. A machine (computer) has nothing to do with classification of language as it only understands 1 and 0. These 1s and 0s indeed represent switching on and switching off of billions of transistors acting like an on/off switch inside a microprocessor chip. So, as far as I know there is no such classification for machine language like we have in place for high-level computer programming languages which may be classified as Objected-Oriented, Structured or Visual programming languages. I hope, this helps you address your query! Regards, M.Yasir
