Overview of C programming



History

C evolved from two previous languages, BCPL and B. BCPL was developed in 1967 by Martin Richards as a language for writing operating systems and compilers.

The C language was evolved Dennis Ritchie at Bell Laboratories and was originally implemented in 1972.Many of today’s leading operating systems are written in C and/or C++. C is mostly hardware independent—with careful design, it’s possible to write C programs that are portable to most computers.
