Con un lenguaje imperativo el programa declara explícitamente cómo debe producirse el resultado deseado, pero sin definir explícitamente qué propiedades se espera que muestre el resultado, está definido solamente implícitamente como cualquier cosa que se obtenga siguiendo el procedimiento especificado. El procedimiento para producir el resultado toma la forma de una secuencia de operaciones y así, con los lenguajes imperativos, las nociones del flujo del control y el ordenamiento de los enunciados son básicos.
