An introduction to one of the most widely used computer programming languages of all time.
Java, Python, C++ and many more have all directly or indirectly borrowed from C, one of the most widely used computer programming languages of all time.
The general purpose, imperative computer programming language is most suited to developing firmware of portable applications. Proven, flexible and powerful, it can also be used for a variety of different applications.
It was initially designed to be a straightforward compiler – which is a computer program that changes source code written in programming language into another computer language. The most common reason for doing this is to create an executable program.
The aim of C was to provide language constructs that mapped onto machine instructions, to provide low-level access to memory, and to require minimal runtime support. Due to these features, C was found to be suited to many applications that had been previously coded in assembly language, an example being system programming.
