Software is nothing but the programming done step by step method for the hardware to understand and starts its process. Software is done through languages. Because machines cannot understand the normal languages which human beings speak. So it is important to understand the machine level language.
Few of the languages used for programming are Basic, C and C++. These programmes are to be installed in a computer in order to be used. Software is what controls all the hardware aspects in a computer In other words it is basically a translator or an intermediate between the hardware and the computer operator. Software can be of different types and some of them are used for running applications and some are used for programming or an intermediate which makes programming very user friendly.
Each set of hardware which is present in the computer is associated with some kind of software and it is the software which makes it function. For example every printer which is manufactured is supplied with a driver CD. The task of this driver CD is to communicate the commands from the user to the equipment thereby helping in the smooth functioning of the equipment.
Programming a software is a very tedious task and it takes a lot of effort into making a error free software. Generally people don’t prefer buying a software which has lots of errors in the program and it will often hang the computer or sometimes even crash the system thus causing huge loss of precious data, files and all other important information. Hence while preparing a software for any equipment it should always be kept in mind that the program should be error free and once this is clean then there will more takers for this software and this will in turn increase the purchase of the software manufacturer.
