C Programming Introduction
C is a general-purpose high level language. It was developed for the Unix
operating system. C is a successor of Basic Combined Programming Language
called B language, developed in the 1960s at Cambridge University.
B was further modified by Dennis Ritchie at AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1972.
This new language was called C language.
Features of C programming
- C has many built-in functions and operators that can be used to write any complex code or program.
- C has many data types and operators that helps in fast execution of program.
- Portability is one of the important feature of C language. Program written in one computer can be executed on any other computer.
- C is structured programming language. You can separate your program in different modules. Modularity makes a program easy to debug, test and maintain.
- C has its own built-in library. We can also add our own function to extend library.
