- Programs that run on a computer. Word-processing software includes
programs that enable writers to compose, edit, store, and print
material. Professional quality software packages incorporate such
amenities as databases that can feed the results of research
electronically into the final manuscript, alphabetization and indexing
functions, and capabilities for constructing tables and charts and
adding graphics to the body of the manuscript. ...
- The programs that tell the computer what to do.
- Operating instructions for specific task based applications. The
computer processors carry out these instructions. These include all
packaged for use like image editing, word processing, databases,
CAD-CAM, games, and so on. Software has to be written for a specific

performs a particular task is called a programme. Two major categories
of software are system operating software and application software. See

- Instructions for a computer, organized into sets called programs.
- Computer programs or design cards.
- computer programming code that provides a computer with instructions
to perform specific tasks; a program or application.
- Coded instructions that direct the operation of a computer. A set of
such instructions for accomplishing a particular task is referred to as
a program. See also firmware.

- The framework software used is Advanced Revelation (running on
MS-DOS within a Novell Netware environment). The specially developed
application programmes in this context are as much a product of this
initiative as the Encyclopedia itself. At every stage in the evolution
of this project, ways have been sought to increase the ability of the
software to enable new styles of editorial and research work. ...
- The programs, procedures, algorithms (set of rules), and their
associated documentation, for a computer system.
- About half of all practitioners today have computer science degrees,
which are the most relevant degrees that are widely available. A small,
but growing, number of practitioners have software engineering degrees.
Today in the US, about 2,000 universities offer computer science degrees
and about 50 universities offer software engineering degrees. Most SE
practitioners will earn computer science degrees for decades to come,
though someday, this may change.
- Written instructions for a computer.
- (computer science) written programs or procedures or rules and
associated documentation pertaining to the operation of a computer
system and that are stored in read/write memory; "the market for
software is expected to expand"
- Computer software (or simply software) refers to one or more
computer programs held in the storage of a computer for some purpose.
Program software performs the function of the program it implements,
either by directly providing instructions to the computer hardware or by
serving as input to another piece of software.
