What is C Language?
‘C’ seems a strange name for a programming language.But this strange sounding language is one of the most popular computer languages today because it is a structured, high-level,machine-independent language. It allows software developers to develop programs without worrying about the hardware platforms where they will be implemented.
C was evolved from ALGOL, BCPL, and B by Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Laboratories in 1972. C uses many concepts from these languages and added the concept of data types and other powerful features.Since it was developed along with UNIX operating system, it is strongly associated with UNIX. This operating system, which was developed at Bell Laboratories, was coded almost entirely in C.UNIX is one of the most popular network operating systems in use today and heart of internet data superhighway. Learning C Language is the base for all programming languages.
Getting Prepared :
1. C language can be learned using Turbo C in Windows and if you are on Linux ( Ubuntu ) use the application Gedit.
2. Don’t forget to check the tutorial series every day.
3. Download and install the appropriate IDE and be ready.
This is just an Introduction To C Programming. Let’s see in the next tutorial.
