 Debunking the Myth of High-level Languages

Nice overview of the differences between high level and low level programming languages.

"The definition of a high-level language is a moving target. Languages that were considered high-level when I learned to program are now considered low-level. In general, a programming language provides a midway point between how you think about a program and how a computer executes the program. Languages that are closer to you than to the computer are considered high-level, while others are considered low-level."
