Let’s say “Hello World” to programming in C. This will give you an overall view about C language.
Is C language still relevant?
C can be considered as Latin of computer languages. It is the first programming language that is taught. It’s keywords are used in C++, Java and even Python. Once you learn C, all the other programming
languages become easy. Many of the books having other languages often assume that you know a little C before starting out.
Best Softwares to code in C
- Visual C++ Express
Here’s how the programming process works on a step-by-step basis:
- Write the source code.
- Compile the source code into object code.
- Link the object code with libraries to build a program.
- Run and test the program.
We also need to fix the errors and bugs in the programs.
