Web programming languages
If computers communicate with each other in protocols, then people communicate with computers through programming languages. Like human languages, there are many dialects and versions designed to run on specific machines or operating systems.
The most widely used Web programming languages are: Ada, Basic, C++, Fortran, Java, Lisp, Perl, PostScript, Prolog, Snobol, and Visual Basic. Note: A programming language can make decisions and perform logic; HTML is a mark-up language, not a programming language, because it cannot do either of those functions.
