Why C is important?

Why C is important?

Lets discuss why C programing is so important. In today’s world of computer programming, there are many high-level languages to choose from, such as C, Perl, BASIC, Java, and C#. These are all excellent languages suited for most programming tasks. Even so, there are several reasons why many computer professionals feel that C is at the top of the list:
• C is a powerful and flexible language. What you can accomplish with C is limited only by your imagination. The language itself places no constraints on you.
C is used for projects as diverse as operating systems, word processors, graphics, spreadsheets, and even compilers for other languages.
• C is a popular language preferred by professional programmers. As a result, a wide variety of C compilers and helpful accessories are available.

• C is a portable language. Portable means that a C program written for one computer system (an IBM PC, for example) can be compiled and run on another system (a DEC VAX system, perhaps) with little or no modification. Additionally, a program written with the Microsoft Windows operating system can be moved to a machine running Linux with little or no modification. Portability is enhanced by  the ANSI standard for C, the set of rules for C compilers.

• C is a language of few words, containing only a handful of terms, called keywords, which serve as the base on which the language’s functionality is built. You  might think that a language with more keywords (sometimes called reserved words) would be more powerful. This isn’t true. As you program with C, you will find that it can be programmed to do any task.

• C is modular. C code can (and should) be written in routines called functions. These functions can be reused in other applications or programs. By passing pieces of information to the functions, you can create useful, reusable code.
