Compare HTML, JavaScript, Pascal, SQL, Visual Basic, and winlogo.

Extracts from this document...


Comparing Six of the programme languages All of the six languages I'm going to compare are HTML, JavaScript, Pascal, SQL, Visual Basic, and winlogo. All of these languages use the same concept of using a sequence of instructions. To achieve the set of goal the programmer starts off with a problem of what the programmes intend to do. The written programmes are known as source of codes and are translated into the object code. Overall the program languages have been created at different time periods, which causes the difference between them. There are many errors in the programmes due to the development in different time periods which have enable them to progress from when they were first created to where they are now. ...read more.


Comparing Visual Basic (VB) with Pascal VB is much better as in Pascal you will have to insert the code by yourself and there is hardly any help. Pascal is the earliest programme designed, which does not include many features but is used a teaching language as it makes the user familiar with the format of programming, i.e. defining variables and integers etc. It is not very useful compared to Visual Basic as it is very hard to find the error in Pascal and it takes a very long time to just move around on the page. Html is a web-oriented language and is the main language that is written to create website. ...read more.


Winlogo is a window computing programming language that has mainly been intended as a basic computing program language to help learners get into the exciting world of programming. It is easy for a new programmer to get started writing basic programs and should enjoy it. It is used for learning control purposes i.e. (FD, BK,). It is very basic and does not have any complex items, which may help further a programming career. Overall I think Visual Basic is the best programming language to use as it is has all the features which are required while creating programs. It is all screen based so you can see what you are creating while you are designing it. With the features provided in the program you can design a high class program. ...read more.

  1. Visual basic

    The third and most important difference is in the way the languages run. Whereas as Qbasic runs like a flowchart and in fact could be written into one, Visual Basic is a series of scripts for events. So, while Qbasic is processing lines of code one by one, VB is waiting for something to happen.

    Number (integer): is any whole number, whether positive or negative. In visual basic you can declare the number as an integer, for example: Dim bookingNo As Integer and this is the same in Pascal, for example VAR I, J: INTEGER; Number (real): is any number represented with a fractional part.

    While trivial to implement in hardware with a wire network (called an XBOX), these permutations are quite expensive to implement in software. Consequently, newer ciphers strictly avoid permutations. We still consider them, however, as they are used in DES [13], the US encryption standard put into practice in the early 1970's and still in wide use today.
