(HLL) A programming language which provides some level of abstraction above
assembly language. These normally use statements consisting of English-like
keywords such as "FOR", "PRINT" or "GOTO", where each statement corresponds to
several machine language instructions. It is much easier to program in a
high-level language than in assembly language though the efficiency of execution
depends on how good the compiler or interpreter is at optimising the program.
Rarely, the variants "VHLL" and "MLL" are found.
