|(language)||procedural language - A term used in contrast to declarative language
to describe a language where the programmer specifies an
explicit sequences of steps to follow to produce a result.|
The term should not be confused with "imperative language". An example (non-imperative) procedural language is LOGO, which specifies sequences of steps to perform but does not have an internal state.
Other procedural languages include Basic, Pascal, C, and Modula-2.
