How Software Works

Software acts as the translator between human languages and binary, which makes it possible for the hardware to understand the instructions being fed into it. Hardware only understands the two basic concepts, on and off, which are represented as 1s and 0s in binary language. Programmers write commands called source code in programming languages that are similar to what someone might use in everyday speech. Another program called a compiler is then used to transform the source code commands into binary. The result is an executable computer program.
