Question 1

Question
Reads whole [blank_start]high level[blank_end] code then translates into [blank_start]machine[blank_end] code, saved as a new [blank_start]file[blank_end]. Program is [blank_start]faster[blank_end] to execute but if errors are found then [blank_start]original[blank_end] code must be [blank_start]edited and recompiled[blank_end].

Question

  • instructions

Question 3

The machine code is then [blank_start]discarded[blank_end], next line is [blank_start]read[blank_end]. Program runs [blank_start]slower but[blank_end] stops when an error is [blank_start]found[blank_end] so it can be resumed.
Answer
  • An interpreter
  • A compiler
  • An assembler
  • one line
  • two lines
  • one byte
  • discarded
  • copied
