C Programming Tutorial:

This tutorial helps you to easily understand the  programming language c.

We use to provide you the tutorial in simplest manner.

Before understanding C programming, We should discuss about “What is programming?” .  In a simple language: programming is nothing else but the process of writing a computer program is termed as programming.

Now, the question may arise “What is COMPUTER PROGRAM ?” .It is a list of instructions that tell a computer what to do.

In this very first chapter, Our main focus is to discuss all about C.


C programming language was originally developed by Sir Dennis Ritchie in 1972 at Bell Laboratory of AT & T (American Telephone & Telegraph), located in USA.

Sir Dennis Ritchie also known as Father of C.

Before developing C, we have such programming languages (i.e. B, Algol, BCPL etc), now the question arise “why we need C ?” and the answer is C was developed to overcome the problems of previous programming languages, but C inherits the features of all those previous languages.

C is considered as the base for all other programming languages and so that, it is also known as Mother Language.

There are some more another way to define the programming language C. Let, we have a figure below for defining with short note of each so that you can compare and understand easily:

C can be defined as a::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

As we all know that C is very popular programming language, but do you know what the reason behind that is, the reasons are:

  1. C is one of the early programming languages.
  2. C programming language is reliable, simple, and easy to use.
  3. C is the best programming language to learn quickly.

And so that, C programming language is widely used.


C provides a lot of features such as:

  1. Reliability,
  2. Modularity,
  3. Flexibility,
  4. Portability,
  5. Interactivity,
  6. Effectiveness & Efficiency,
  7. Collection of rich C library functions.

Uses of C:

C has been written in assembly language. It was invented for developing the system applications. Such as:

  • Database System::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
  • Operating System development:::::::::::::::::::::
  • Compilers and Assemblers::::::::::::::::::::::::
  • Language Interpreters:::::::::::::::::::::
  • Network Drivers:::::::::::::
  • Word processors::::::::::::::
  • Spreadsheets:::::::::::::::::
  • Graphic Packages::::::::::::::::::


There are many software are available on internet to write a C program such as: TURBO C/C++ editors etc.

A compiler is a computer program that transforms human readable (programming language ) source code into another computer language (Binary code).

In another words, Compilers takes the codes that you write and turned into the binary code that computer can understand. You can also join python training in greater noida with Nitin Singhal.
