C Programming Language Overview - Programming Tutorial Tellmoreblog by 9jatrix: 9:06am On Jan 12
C is a general -purpose , high - level language that was originally developed by Dennis M . Ritchie to develop the UNIX operating system at Bell Labs . C was originally first implemented on the DEC PDP- 11 computer in 1972.
In 1978, Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie produced the first publicly available description of C, now known as the K&R standard.
The UNIX operating system, the C compiler, and essentially all UNIX application programs have been written in C. C has now become a widely used professional language for various reasons −
Easy to learn
Structured language
It produces efficient programs
It can handle low-level activities
It can be compiled on a variety of computer platforms
Facts about C
C was invented to write an operating system called UNIX.
C is a successor of B language which was introduced around the early 1970s.
The language was formalized in 1988 by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI).
The UNIX OS was totally written in C.
Today C is the most widely used and popular System Programming Language.
Most of the state-of-the-art software have been implemented using C.
Today's most popular Linux OS and RDBMS MySQL have been written in C.
Why use C?
C was initially used for system development work, particularly the programs that make-up the operating system. C was adopted as a system development language because it produces code that runs nearly as fast as the code written in assembly language. Some examples of the use of C might be −
Operating Systems
Language Compilers
Text Editors
Print Spoolers
Network Drivers
Modern Programs
Language Interpreters
C Programs
A C program can vary from 3 lines to millions of lines and it should be written into one or more text files with extension ".c" ; for example, hello.c . You can use "vi" , "vim" or any other text editor to write your C program into a file.
This tutorial assumes that you know how to edit a text file and how to write source code inside a program file.
