C Programming Language- What Is It?

C programming language definition

This page contains information on what is the C programming language and what are its specificities. The C programming language (or the C scripting language) was developed between 1969 and 1973. By design it provides code that maps efficiently to typical computer instructions. That’s why the C scripting language stuck with developers and found lasting use in programs that had to be programmed in assembly language, most often system software like the Unix OS. The C programming language has been a very commonly used scripting language for a long time, and there are C compilers for almost any computer architecture. A lot of newer scripting languages have been influenced from the C programming language, including but not limited to Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP and Python.

Programming in C

C scripting language what is c programing

If you are a programmer, or if you are interested in development and learning the C programming language, here are a few things to consider that might be helpful in the future: You will have the ability to read and write code for a many platforms — everything from micro-controllers to the most advanced scientific systems can be written in C script, and many modern operating systems are written in C script. The jump to the object oriented C++ language becomes much easier. C++ is an augmentation of C, and its almost implausible to memorize C++ without studying the C scripting language first. The C scripting language has been around for many years and has won widespread acceptance because it gives programmers maximum control and efficiency and is easy language to learn.
