Programming languages for computer networks

Modern information technologies need increasingly sophisticated information processing tools. Therefore, the need for such funds is constantly growing. The combination of computers and means of communication has had a significant impact on the principles of organization of computer systems. The model in which one computer performed all the necessary data processing work gave way to a model that represents a large number of separate but interconnected computers. Such systems are called computer networks. Two or more computers are called interconnected if they can exchange information.

The emergence and active development of computer networks has led to the creation of numerous versions of popular programming languages adapted for computer networks

The emergence and active development of computer networks has led to the creation of numerous versions of popular programming languages adapted for computer networks. Distinctive features inherent in network languages: they are interpretable. Interpreters are distributed free of charge for them, and the programs themselves are in the source code. Such languages are called script languages.

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is a universal hypertext markup language used to prepare Web documents for the Internet. The language is a set of elementary commands for formatting text, adding graphic objects (pictures), setting fonts and colors, organizing links and tables. In accordance with the HTML commands, the browser displays the contents of the document, language commands are not displayed. The HTML language is based on the mechanism of hypertext links, which provides a link between one document and another. In HTML, text is encoded in ASCII and therefore can be created and edited in any text editor. All Web pages are written in HTML or use its extension.

Perl. In the 80s. Larry Wall developed the Perl language, which was designed to efficiently process large text files, create text reports, and manage tasks. It includes numerous functions for working with strings, arrays, all kinds of means of data conversion, process control, working with system information, etc.

Tcl/Tk. In the late 80s. John Austiraut invented the Tcl script language and the Tk library. Tcl is an attempt to create the perfect scripting language. It focuses on automation of routine operations and consists of powerful teams that process untyped objects.

VRML. In 1994, VRML was created for organizing virtual three-dimensional interfaces on the Internet. It focuses on the description of a variety of three-dimensional images, color and shadow lighting in text form and allows you to create different scenarios of the worlds, travel on them, "fly around" from different sides, rotate in any direction, scale, control lighting and much more.
