C Programming Tutorial for Beginners

Founder of C Dennis Ritchie

C is a powerful general-purpose programming language developed at AT & T's Bell Laboratories of USA in 1972.It was designed and written by Dennis Ritchie. C become popular because it is reliable, simple and easy to use.C Programming used to develop software like operating systems, databases, compilers, and so on. C programming is an excellent language to learn to program for beginners.

Although numerous computer languages are used for writing computer applications, the computer programming language, C, is the most popular language worldwide. Everything from micro controllers to operating systems is written in C since it’s very flexible and versatile, allowing maximum control with minimal commands. If you are interested in a career in computer programming, it would be wise to start by learning the C programming language.

C is a procedural programming language. It was initially developed by Dennis Ritchie as a system programming language to write operating system. The main features of C language include low-level access to memory, simple set of keywords, and clean style, these features make C language suitable for system programming like operating system or compiler development.

C language is considered as the mother language of all the modern programming languages because most of the compilers, JVMs, Kernels, etc. are written in C language, and most of the programming languages follow C syntax, for example, C++, Java, C#, etc.

Code::Blocks or C and C++ Programming

Why we using Code::Blocks for C Programming

Compiling and executing C programs using command prompt is difficult to programmers.Once you got strong hold to compile and execute C programs using command line, it’s time to switch to IDE. However, I always recommend a beginner to use command prompt for sometime for compiling and executing C programs.CodeBlocks is a powerful IDE for creating, compiling, executing and debugging C/C++ programs.
