To put it simply there are two parts to a computer. Hardware. Which is the physical machine itself and all of it's physical parts. ALL OFTHE PARTS.
SOFTWARE is the electronically encoded instructions that are used for the various parts of the computer to communicate with each other and with you.
A analogy could be this. Lets say you have a Typewriter. It can do nothing on it's own. Just sits there. You decide to type "Mary had a little lamb." on a piece of paper. You do this and pull the paper out of the machine.
You read it. the words are made up of symbols that don't have meaning until you put them into a language. That language, English. Is the software. The piece of paper is hardware. When you read it, i.e. interpret it. you are understanding it because you know the "code" of the English language.
The answer I'm giving you, on this page is like a software language that you and I agree upon so that you understand what I'm communicating to you. The Screen you are looking at is Hardware. The understanding of the words that you have, That's the 'software' language English.
In Computers there are languages for the machine, called machine language. There are languages that are mathematical. There is an alphabet and there is a language to convert these things to languages that people speak and languages the put the colors on the screen and where to put them. Lots of languages. Hope this helps,
Best, Mark
