Programming tools are programs used by software developers (also known as programmers, coders, hackers or software engineers) to create, debug, or maintain software. These tools may be relatively self-contained programs such as compilers, debuggers, interpreters, linkers, and text editors, that can be combined together to accomplish a task; or they may form an integrated development environment (IDE) , which combines much or all of the functionality of such self-contained tools.


A compiler is a computer program that transforms source code written in a high-level programming language (the source language) into low-level computer language (the target language), most often to create an executable program. If the compiled program can run on a computer whose CPU or operating system is different from the one on which the compiler runs, the compiler is known as a cross-compiler. A program that translates from a low level language to a higher level one is a decompiler.

A compiler is likely to perform many or all of the following operations: lexical analysis, preprocessing, parsing, semantic analysis, code generation, and code optimization.


A debugger is a computer program used to test and debug other programs. Debuggers offer many sophisticated functions such as running a program step by step, breaking (pausing) at some event or by means of a breakpoint to examine the current state, and tracking the values of variables. Some debuggers have the ability to modify program state while it is running. It may also be possible to continue execution at a different location in the program to bypass a crash or logical error.


An interpreter is a computer program that directly executes instructions written in a programming without previously compiling them into a machine language program.


A linker is a computer program that takes one or more object files generated by a compiler and combines them into a single executable file, library file, or another object file.

    Write in C

    When I find my code in tons of trouble,
    Friends and colleagues come to me,
    Speaking words of wisdom:
    "Write in C."

    As the deadline fast approaches,
    And bugs are all that I can see,
    Somewhere, someone whispers:
    "Write in C."

    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, oh, Write in C.
    LOGO’s dead and buried,
    Write in C.

    I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
    For science it worked flawlessly.
    Try using it for graphics!
    Write in C.

    If you’ve just spent nearly 30 hours
    Debugging some assembly,
    Soon you will be glad to
    Write in C.

    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
    Only wimps use BASIC.
    Write in C.

    Write in C, Write in C
    Write in C, oh, Write in C.
    Pascal won’t quite cut it.
    Write in C.

    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
    Don’t even mention COBOL.
    Write in C.

    (and what about C++ ?)
