from the Plum Voice IVR Glossary
Source code is text that has been written in a programming language. Developers and programmers are able to dictate and specify the actions that will be performed by a computer through the use of source code. The source code is then translated from specific source code into binary machine code that is then summarily read, interpreted, and executed by the computer. Typically, computer applications include executable files but not original source code. By not including original source code, computer programmers can only understand and modify the program. Source codes are created as programs and then stored on the hard disk or a database that is contained in one file or spread out across many files. Source code can be written uniformly in one language, or written in different programming languages.
