Features of C programming language

  • C is an offspring of the Basic Combined programming language - the B language. B language developed in the year 1960 at Cambridge University.
  • C language is very good for building both application software and system software.
  • C programs are very efficient, fast, and highly portable. Programs composed for one platform can be run on another platform.
  • C is a structured programming language. Source code can be structured as individual entities such as structure, union, and functions and composed to deliver software.
  • C language makes it easy to debug, test, and maintain source code.
  • C provides loop constructs like while, do-while, and for.
  • C provides conditional constructs like if, goto, switch, break, and a while.
  • C supports code re-usability.
  • C has a limited number of keywords - only 32.
  • A c program can run under many operating systems.
  • C can be used to produce small programs as well as complex applications.
  • C language has been used in writing most of the operating systems such as UNIX and LINUX.
