C is a general-purpose, procedural programming language.
C programming was developed by Denis Ritchie at Bell Labs, during 1980 - 1990. it was the most popular programming language.
it also becomes the most widely used programming language in that era.
it is also known as the successor of B programming languages.
it is said that origin of c programming language with Unix operating system, which was implemented with assembly language.
two main people who developed c programming was denis Ritchie and ken Thompson.
the idea behind to develop c programming language came in mind with the need for utility programs.
initially, Thompson created Fortran compiler and recently gave up.
In 1972 Denis Ritchie started to improve B programming language and result in the form of new programming language C.
it was the first edition of C programming language, this book known as C programmers K&R C, the second edition of this cover ANSI C
As C programming language becomes popular, C is implemented in mainframe, mini, and microcomputers, including IBM.
Around 1993 ANSI (Americal National Standards of Institute) formed a committee X3J11 to the established standard specification of C.
Note: there are different versions of C programming languages like C89, C90, C11, C18 which are some modifications and changes in the programming language.
There are some points which define the popularity and importance of the C programming language.
The c programming language has a basic syntax library.
