What is programming

The term programming means to create (or develop) software, which is also called a program. Computer programs, known as software, are instructions that tell a computer what to do. Every Computer language is designed for some specific purpose. For example, Fortran was designed for scientific and mathematical calculations, COBOL (Common business Oriented Language) was designed for business applications. Similarly, C language was developed for programming in the operating system called UNIX.

What is C

C is a high-level and general-purpose programming language that is ideal for developing firmware or portable applications. Originally intended for writing system software, C was developed at AT & T Bell Laboratories by Dennis Ritchie for the Unix Operating System in the early 1970s.

C was derived from a language called B which was written by Ken Thompson, hence the name C to indicate it is a successor of language B.

C is not a high-level language, instead, it is a mid-level language with the simplicity of high-level language and power of low-level language. As a result, programs written in C are very fast.
