Software is a set of programmes and instructions. It has associated documentation and data. This is in contrast to hardware, which is a system that is built and actually performs the work. At the lowest level of programming, it consists of MLL, or machine-level language. This instruction typically processes the central processing unit and the graphics processing unit. Machine language consists of groups of binary values signifying changes in the state of the computer. The majority of software is written in high-level languages.
