Welcome to Introduction to C Programming

The C Programming Language is one of the most influential and widely used languages in computer science history.

C was designed for the creation and implementation of low-level systems such as operating systems, device drivers, firmware, etc... To realize this goal, the language contains the ability to perform operations directly on memory and has direct access to system pointers.

C (and later C++) quickly became the de facto standard for developing operating systems, applications and most other large projects. UNIX as well as Windows, Linux, and Mac-OS X were developed using this language. Many popular programming languages today are based directly on the syntax of C. these include Java and Microsoft C#.
