Natural is a fourth-generation programming language and development environment used to create enterprise-scale applications. It was first introduced in the 1970s and has since undergone several advancements. The language emphasizes readability, similar to speaking English or other human languages, which makes it accessible for non-technical stakeholders who can more easily understand the program flow and logic.
The Natural Development Environment (NATDE) includes tools for debugging, performance tuning, version control, and cross-environment testing. For data handling, Natural can be used with hierarchical databases like Adabas as well as SQL-compliant systems.
