1. What is the difference between high-level and low-level programming languages? Give one example for each type of programming language.
Low level languages are appropriate for writing operating systems or firmware. The lowest of programming languages is Machine Code. So basic it is extremely efficient.
High level languages are abstract, instead of telling it what to do and how to do it you simply ask it to do as you say and it will find a way. characterized as inefficient.
2. What is an open-source programming language?
Open source languages is somewhat of a blurred subject. Python has the Pep process, which allows anybody to alter the syntax/semantics of the language itself. However it isn't the language that is open source, rather the software implementing the language.
3. What is the difference between IDLE (Python GUI) and command-line? Which one would you use when you want to save a program you are working on?
IDLE(Python GUI) has a GUI, or a Graphic User Interface. The IDLE(Python GUI) has built in save functions on the file bar but if you download alternate versions of python you can save with command line, albeit a little harder.
4. What is the first thing you need to do when you want to start building a program that you want to save and be able to run/edit later on?
(Edit default script to your preference)Save as "Filename.cs/py/js/etc".
5. What happens when you type print “Hello, world” without the brackets?
"SyntaxError: invalid syntax"
6. What does invalid syntax mean when programming with Python?
It means the language can not understand the command you gave it because you messed up the correct method of designation and defining different areas of code i.e. what you want python to print and what you want python to run.
