C Programming is widely used in Computer Technology, We can say that C is inspiration for development of other languages. We can use C for different purposes.
C is a robust language with rich set of built-in functions and operators that can be used to write any complex program.
The C compiler combines the capabilities of an assembly language with features of a high-level language.
Programs Written in C are efficient and fast. This is due to its variety of data type and powerful operators.
It is many time faster than BASIC.
C is highly portable this means that programs once written can be run on another machines with little or no modification.
Below are some of the Features of C Programming –
Low Level Language Support
Powerful and Feature Rich
High Level Features
Efficient Use of Pointers
C Language Syntax Rules:
C Language Syntax RulesC language syntax specify rules for sequence of characters to be written in C language. The rule specify how character sequence will be grouped together to form tokens. A smallest individual unit in c program is known as C Tokens. Tokens are either keyword, identifier, constant, variable or any symbol which has some meaning in C language.
A C program can also be called as collection of various tokens.
C is a case sensitive language so all C instructions must be written in lower case letter.
All C statement must be end with a semicolon.
Whitespace is used in C to describe blanks and tabs.
Whitespace is required between keywords and identifiers
