Software is a program that enable a computer to perform a specific task as opposed to the physical component of system(hardware)
this include application software such as a word processor , which enable a user to perform specific task , an system software such as an operating system which enable other software to run properly , by interfacing by hardware and other by software
practical computer system divide software into three major classes
Computer software has to be loaded into the computer’s storage (such as a hard drive, memory, or RAM).Once the software is loaded, the computer is able to execute the software.
Computers operate by executing the computer program
This involves passing instructions from the application software, through the system software, to the hardware which ultimately receives the instruction as machine code
