A compiler is a software program that takes human-readable code and turns it into a form that can be executed by a computer. Compilers usually produce faster running code than an interpreter because they translate the entire program into machine code before execution. Compilers are commonly used in scripting languages like C++, and Java. In addition to compiling source code, many compilers also provide additional features such as debugging tools, code profiling, and code analysis.
