C is a powerful general-purpose programming language. It is fast, portable and available in all platforms. C is a procedural programming language.C was originally developed at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie, between 1972 and 1973. It was created to make utilities running on Unix
During the 1980s, C gradually gained popularity. Nowadays, it is one of the most widely used programming languages], with C compilers from various vendors available for the majority of existing computer architectures and operating systems. C has been standardized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) since 1989 (see ANSI C) and subsequently by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Later it was used in Development of Unix kernel which was re implementation and after that in 90s the Linux kernel was written in C by Linus Torvalds
The main features of C language include low-level access to memory, simple set of keywords, and clean style, these features make C language suitable for system programming like operating system or compiler development.
After the evolution of OOPS languages C is now considered only for System or low level development it is now days popular in Development of embed Systems Micro Controllers Because of its Efficiency and Cleanliness
