What is C language?

The C Programming / Language is a high-level procedure-oriented programming language. It is a high-level Programming language as it is syntactically closer to the English language.

A general-purpose, high-level, evergreen and non-exhaustive programming language that was developed by the Unix operating system at Bell Labs. C is one of the most flexible, simple, and popular programming language.

It is useful for developing various types of applications such as Apps and websites . It is a machine-independent and a structured programming language
The C programs are platform independent but c files are platform dependent. This means that you can write a C program on any platform and can also come pilot anywhere.

Advantages of C Programming:

Platform Dependent: As we copy the .exe file to any other computer which contains windows OS then it works properly because native code is the same. But when the same .exe file if we are copying to any other computer which contains UNIX/LINUX OS then it doesn’t work because the native code is different. This behavior is Platform Dependency.

Portability: We can carrying the instruction from one system to another system.

Easy: The C language syntax is very easy to understand as it contains keywords such as – if, else, switch, main, etc which we use in our day-to-day life.

Readability: Maintenance of the C code is easy due to the readability of the code.

Applications of C Programming?

  • To design the system software like operating system and Compiler.
  • To develop application software like database and spread sheets.
  • For Develop Graphical related application like computer and mobile games.
  • To evaluate any kind of mathematical equation use c language.
  • To design the compilers.

The other names of C language are as follows:-

  1. Mother Language.
  2. Procedure – oriented Programming Language
  3. Structured Programming Language
