C is a general-purpose, procedural, imperative computer programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis M. Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories to develop the UNIX operating system. C is the most widely used computer language. It keeps fluctuating at number one scale of popularity along with Java programming language, which is also equally popular and most widely used among modern software programmers.
C programming is highly efficient. That’s the main reason why it’s very popular despite being more than 40 years old. Standard C programs are portable. The source code written in one system works in another operating system without any change.
