C Introduction :

History :

The C Language is one the powerful programming languages used to write computer programs for variety of applications. It was developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Laboratories during the 1970's.

Why C language is important for programmers, IT Students and Developers?

C has flexible features to write programs for numerical, commercial and graphical applications. It is also used by engineers to write programs for lower level accessing along with assembly language. Many operating system programs for the latest computers and compilers are written using C language.

Some Information About C Language:
