What is C?

C is a general purpose programming language developed in the early 1970s by Dennis Ritchie. It’s one of the most widely used programming languages of all time, originally developed for implementing the UNIX operating system. Nowadays it’s largely used for developing system applications, database systems, graphics packages, operation system development and much more. It’s a structure oriented language, meaning its prime focus is on functions and it follows a ’top down’ approach.
