Very high-level programming language

Very high-level programming language

A very high-level programming language (VHLL) is a programming language with a very high level of abstraction, used primarily as a professional programmer productivity tool.

Very high-level programming languages are usually limited to a very specific application, purpose, or type of task. Due to this limitation in scope, they might use syntax that is never used in other programming languages, such as direct English syntax. For this reason, very high-level programming languages are often referred to as goal-oriented programming languages.
