In First-generation programming language computer (was and still) converting information given by a programmer into a binary numbers which is a combinations of 0s and 1s as there was no translator used to compile or assemble the information given. The advantage of programming is that, the code could run very and efficiently precise as the information are executed directly by the CPU.
The disadvantages in low level languages is when an error occurs the code was not easy to fix. It could take a week to change and run the program.
Everything a programmer type on the computer the CPU convert them to a machine language which is a combination of 0s and 1s.
Understanding how computers process information given into a binary number in order to understand is not easy. An example been given bellow.
