Computer software, or simply software, refers to the non-tangible components of computers, known as computer programs. The term is used to contrast with computer hardware, which denotes the physical tangible components of computers. It may be used as an adjective to mean "non-tangible component" or as a group noun to mean "all computer programs when taken as a whole". Computer hardware and software require each other and neither can be realistically used without the other.
