C - What is C Language

What is C Language

The C programming language is a computer programming language that was developed associated system programming for the package OS and is an imperative programming language. Or we will say that C could be a high-level structured orientated artificial language, utilized in general purpose programming, developed by Dennis Ritchie at AT&T Bell Labs, the USA between 1969 and 1973.

The artificial language, C is that the basic of all programming languages. thus it might be higher if you study C language initial. as a result of then it'll be straightforward to grasp the idea of all different languages.


Some common facts of C programming language

  • In 1988, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) had formalized the C language.
  • C was invented to write UNIX operating system.
  • C is a successor of 'Basic Combined Programming Language' (BCPL) called B language.
  • Linux OSPHP, and MySQL are written in C.
  • C has been written in assembly language.

Why we use C Programming language

Initially, C was used for developing system applications, e.g. :

  • Database Systems
  • Language Interpreters
  • Compilers and Assemblers
  • Operating Systems
  • Network Drivers
