Example text

To be executed, first they must be loaded from disk into main memory. Input data for an executing program can come from a file, and output data can also be sent to a file. The files are physically scattered over the surface of the disk. To keep track of all these files of information, the operating system maintains a directory of them. The directory is a list of all the files on the disk. Each entry in the directory has the file's name, its size, its physical location on the disk, and any other information the operating system needs to manage the files.

An important property of the languages at Level HOL6 is their machine independence. If you write a program in a Level HOL6 language for execution on a Brand X computer, it will run with only slight modification on a Brand Y computer. 3 shows how C++ achieves its machine independence. Suppose you write an applications program in C++ to do some statistical analysis. You want to sell it to people who own Brand X computers and to others who own Brand Y. The statistics program can be executed only if it is in machine language.

1 Variables A computer can directly execute statements in machine language only at Level ISA3, the instruction set architecture level. So a Level HOL6 statement must first be translated to Level ISA3 before executing. 1 shows the function of a compiler, which performs the translation from a Level HOL6 language to the Level ISA3 language. 1: The Function of a Compiler, Which Translates a Program in a Level 6 Language to an Equivalent Program in a Language at a Lower Level. This Figure Shows Translation to Level 3.
