					                             In computer programming, the term code
refers to source code and machine code. Source code is a sequence of
statements written in a computer programming language, which can be
easily deciphered. On the other hand, machine code is a set of
instructions executed directly by the computer's CPU. It is a
representation of a compiled computer program. A block of code written by
a programmer is the core element of every web & software development
process. Let us learn a bit more about source code:Source Code (commonly
referred to as Source): Source code is a set of statements written in a
human-readable programming language. It lets you use a reserved number of
instructions to communicate with the computer. The source code is usually
saved in one or more text files. Mostly, a large set of source code files
is organized into a directory tree, also known as source tree. Source
code is mainly used as an input to the process that creates an executable
program. In simpler terms, it has to be converted from a human-readable
format into a type of computer-executable form with the help of a
compiler or with the help of an interpreter. How Programmers Enhance
their Programming Skills with Source Code? Programmers are always eager
to learn more about programming techniques for a successful software and
web application development process. That's why they find it very helpful
to review any existing source code and so they always share source code
to enhance their programming skills. The adaptation of source code from
one piece of software to use in other projects is common among
programmers. This eases the programming process. This kind of adaptation
is known as software re-usability. The Quality of Source Code: There is
no such concept of a well-written source code in computer terminology.
But, from a human programmer's perspective, source codes often stress on
readability to reduce the cost of software source code maintenance. An
affordable web development expert follows the source code programming
style guides to ensure the programs are written with ease.
