ANS: What are compilers

Compilers are software programs designed to understand the high level language program and convert it in to low level machine language program. Each language comes with its own compiler.

Since a compiler converts a program into machine level code, compilers are dependent on the operating systems. Thus, for one language, there are different compilers for different operating systems.

Earlier, compilers were written in assembly language. Assembly langue is one step higher up than the machine instructions. It uses mnemonics (human readable codes) to replace raw number values and hence is more readable to humans than machine language.

However, compilers are now written in high level languages as well.
Different programming languages have been created and new ones are created every years.
