Software is a series of instructions and information
Tell a specific computer how to perform a certain task. In comparison to physical hardware, such as a computer case, the software is assembled and actually does the actual work. There are three different categories of software: Applications, Compilers, and Operating Systems. A typical PC includes an Application Software System, or ASX, a compiler that compiles source code into executable files, and an operating system that runs the program. These three categories combined allow for many unique types of software applications.
The application software system allows for the creation of both desktop and web applications. One example of this would be Microsoft Office, the office program for Macs. Another popular example of application software is Apple’s Objective C, which is used to create apps for both Macs and PCs. There are many other examples of application software, but these are some of the most common.
Examples of computer software to used for construction
Compiler software is used to convert one language (for example C++) into another language (for example Java). There are two main types of compilers, CMake and LDLIB, with each having their own set of benefits and drawbacks. The main types of systems software are more generic, such as WebIDE and PHP. These systems also allow for the creation of stand-alone applications and integration with existing programs via a wrapper.
Operating systems on the other hand, are designed to manage software’s execution on a particular computer system. Examples of such operating systems include Windows and Linux. Examples of popular operating software include Sun’s Open Source Operating System, Windows Server, and Apple’s OS X. As previously mentioned, there are two main categories, which include the generic types and the more specialized types of software. Some examples of the more specialized types of software include database software, web server software, and game engine software.
Web browsers are examples of specialized software
Web browsers can be stand alone (not requiring an installation), or they can be part of a larger web platform. Examples include Internet Explorer and Firefox. Web pages are composed of embedded codes in web browser. Examples of computer programs include email programs, word processors, spreadsheet programs, web browsers, and web server software.
Computer software is divided into five examples to help people better understand what it is. These categories can be broken down into three more categories, for easier discussion. These categories are the generic, the specialized, and the involved. Generic software is computer programs that are not tied to any specific application. They can be stand alone, or they can be part of an application package. The more specialized types of software are ones that only work with a specific piece of software, and the involved types are the ones that help with every aspect of a computer program.
