C is the name of a procedural, imperative programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Laboratories. It was a major improvement over the earlier languages BCPL and B.

C is still a popular choice for projects where speed and small program size are important considerations, such as embedded firmware. A significant portion of the Linux kernel was written in C. The syntax of C inspired many later languages such as C++, Java and C Sharp. Many C compilers also support low-level programming via integrated inline assemblers.

"Hello World!" program

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
  printf("Hello World!\n");
  return 0;
}
