What language is used to build programming langues?

I am curious. For example if we use #include <iostream> iostream has a huuuge amount of text if debuged. Same withother stuff like SELECT from MySql etc. I wonder how that works that the system knows to do what it does after a command.

Off-topic: Albeit being born relatively recent in comparison to the "old days" of programming where everything from wires to switches were things the programmer had to deal with, I've always had an oddly profound interest in the "vintage" style. Disregarding the generic title, this quora thread is a good read on the experiences of the heroes who've fought through the mentioned era. https://www.quora.com/In-the-early-days-of-programming-what-was-it-like-to-write-programs-directly-in-binary

But in order to assemble you need something which is there. You cant use parts of a langue which does not exist because the language which is needed is based on the language itself. That makes no sense to me :D
