Summary

C is a powerful, concise programming language. It is popular because it offers useful programming tools and good control over hardware and because C programs are easier than most to transport from one system to another.

C is a compiled language. C compilers and linkers are programs that convert C language source code into executable code.

Programming in C can be taxing, difficult, and frustrating, but it can also be intriguing, exciting, and satisfying. We hope you find it as enjoyable and fascinating as we do.
