From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  procedural language
      Any programming language in which the programmer
     specifies an explicit sequences of steps to follow to produce
     a result (an algorithm).
     The term should not be confused with "{imperative language" -
     a language that specifies explicit manipulation of state.  An
     example (non-imperative) procedural language is LOGO, which
     specifies sequences of steps to perform but does not have an
     internal state.
     Other procedural languages include Basic, Pascal, C, and
     Both procedural and imperative languages are in contrast to
     declarative languages, in which the programmer specifies
     neither explicit steps nor explicit state manipulation.
