Functions of Operating System and Language Processor

Q10. What are the functions of operating system and language processor? Give examples of language processors.

Ans. Operating System

An operating system is a program which acts as an interface between a user and the hardware (that is, all computer resources).

Language Processor

The computer does not understand any language other than its own machine language (binary language) therefore; it becomes necessary to process a High Level Language (HLL) program so as to make it understandable to the computer. The system programs which perform this very job are language processors.

For example:

Assembler, interpreter and compiler.
