    Compilers compiles our program and converts our high level language program into machine level language.It compiles the whole program at once so it takes less time than a interpreter.

    I can simply said that Compiler is a translator, which help you transform a bunch of code from one language (programming language) which can be understood by the machine (assembly or machine language).
    since machine is not understanding (print, echo or etc) they read binary code.

    A compiler is a computer program (or set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language, often having a binary form known as object code).

    A compiler is a computer program (or set of programs) that transforms source code written in a programming language (the source language) into another computer language (the target language, often having a binary form known as object code).The most common reason for wanting to transform source code is to create an executable program.

    A compiler is set of computer programs, its processes statements written in a particular programming language and turns them into machine language.

    Compile is a special program that translates the high-level language instructions into object code or machine language. Every high-level programming language comes with a compiler. compiler is the language, because it defines which instructions are acceptable.

    compiler change the source code into machine code.It makes the data computer readable.

    A compiler is a special program that processes statements written in a particular programming language and turns them into machine language or "code" that a computer's processor uses. Typically, a programmer writes language statements in a language such as Pascal or C one line at a time using an editor. The file that is created contains what are called the source statements. The file that is created contains what are called the source statements. The programmer then runs the appropriate language compiler, specifying the name of the file that contains the source statements.

    a program that converts instructions into a machine-code or lower-level form so that they can be read and executed by a computer.

    It's a program that translates source code(code written in high level language like C) to low level language(generaly Assembly).

    compiler is a computer program that converts high level programming language into machine code i.e source code into machine code.

    A compiler is a program that translates a source program written in some high-level programming language (such as Java) into machine code for some computer architecture (such as the Intel Pentium architecture). The generated machine code can be later executed many times against different data each time. An interpreter reads an executable source program written in a high-level programming language as well as data for this program, and it runs the program against the data to produce some results. One example is the Unix shell interpreter, which runs operating system commands interactively.
