third-generation language

Also known as a "3GL," it refers to a high-level programming language such as FORTRAN, COBOL, BASIC, Pascal and C. It is a step above assembly language and a step below a fourth-generation language (4GL). For an example of the difference between a 3GL and a 4GL, see fourth-generation language.
