Procedural programming

Procedural programming is a concept of programming that specifies a sequence of well-structured steps and procedures (functions or sub-routines) within its programming context to create a program. 

It is set of instructions step by step that a computer must follow.

A procedural programming can consists of a series of conditions and function called logic and it's output is very
linear. Procedures or functions or sub-routines are implemented on the data and variables to perform a task. These procedures can be called anywhere between the program hierarchy, and by other procedures as well. 

Procedural language is also called as imperative language.

Procedural programming does not fit for large scale development.

Example:

C, Pascal, and Basic.
