A compiler is a computer program that converts high-level or human readable instructions into low-level machine code that the computer can execute.

Recall that the computer only typically understands zeros and ones (0s and 1s). Let's take the sample C++ program below for example:

#include<iostream>

using namespace std;

int main(){

cout << "Welcome to cpentalk.com";

return 0;

}

This code is written in C++ and is considered a high-level language because the syntax is human readable. In order for the computer to understand a code as the one shown above, a compiler will be needed to convert this human-readable code to binary codes that the computer can understand and execute.
