What is Code Blocks? How TO Download Code Blocks

Today in this article we will know what is code blocks and how to download code blocks.

Before downloading Code Blocks, you should know why to use a compiler like Code Blocks. So let’s know about this.

When we write a program using a programming language, then to make that program understandable by the machine, it has to be converted into the binary language (0 and 1 ), because the computer can only understand the machine language (0 and 1 language).

In such a situation, the code we have written will have to be converted into binary language or machine language. Compilers like Code Blocks are used only to convert the code into binary language or machine language.

What is code blocks?

Code Blocks is a compiler that converts the code or programs written in a programming language into a binary language (0 and 1) that the machine can understand so that the machine can easily understand the programs or code written by us.

Different compilers are present in the market according to different operating systems.

If we want to make our programs understandable for Mac Operating System, then a different compiler is used for that and a different compiler is used for Windows Operating System and Linux Operating System.

Code blocks are mostly used to compile programs written in C/C++ language. Let us now know how to download Code Blocks.
