What is source code in simple?

Post by BIT0112-Rokon on Mon Dec 14, 2009 7:19 pm

Guys, Can you tell me what is source code in simple..?if it would be thrown to me, I would answered "Human readable code before the program is compiled". It is very simple answer. But why it is called source code or do you know anything more about source code..?

to me.. source code is the code we write using programming language, and it might include comments as well.

it is called source code because using that code, the compiler/interpreter creates the executable/does whatever instructions you gave. That is, it works as the source of the program.

According to you,
Human readable code before the program is compiled

which doesn't actually put much difference between source code and pseudo code.

Source code is not supposed to be universally understandable.

Also, source code contains comments sometimes, for the sake of later programmers who will use that source for understanding new concepts, or reuse it.
