for first generation language
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
first generation language
Raw machine code. When computers were first "programmed"
from an input device, rather than by being rewired, they were
fed input in the form of numbers, which they then interpreted
as commands. This was really low level, and a program
fragment might look like "010307 010307". Almost no one
programs in machine language anymore, because translators are
nearly trivial to write.
