The C beginings...

Hello everyone, i have been posting stuffs about IT news and others.. Well i want to start the day off by discussing a very cool Language, the C language.
C is a general-purpose programming language which spots features such as
  • economy of expression
  • modern flow control and data structures 
  • and a rich set of operators. 
C is not a " very high level '' language, it is small(i.e. it is compact and tiny) , and is not specialized to any particular area of application. But its absence of restrictions and its generality make it more convenient and effective for many tasks than supposedly more powerful languages.

C was originally designed for and implemented on the UNIX operating system on the DEC
PDP-11, by Dennis Ritchie. The operating system, the C compiler - a compiler is a piece of software that converts human readable high language into machine readable language(code) , and essentially all UNIX
applications programs are written in C.
Production compilers also exist for several other machines, including the IBM System/370, the Honeywell 6000, and the Interdata 8/32. C is not tied to any particular hardware or system, however, and it is easy to write programs that will run without change on any machine that supports C.
