procedural language

<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.
