C is a computer programming language that can be used for operating systems, as well as applications.
It is also known as compiled language, and it is widely recognised for its relationship with UNIX operating systems, even though it is a comprehensive system that is compatible and independent of UNIX.
The programming language was developed at the Bell laboratories in 1972 and is one of the most widely used programming languages. It allows programmers to maintain optimum control and efficiency of the created and implemented program, which is then run through a compiler.
The language can be used for a variety of applications and across a range of operating systems. It is utilised in a diverse range of industries, from pharmaceuticals, gaming to manufacturing.
