3. Implementation of Algorithms in the C Programming Language
Algorithms are usually destined to be implemented as computer programs. A programming language offers a set of primitive, standard operators and rules. We will use these elements when writing our programs in C in this chapter.
The C language was born at Bell Labs. C is a useful language for developing applications, and it allows us to translate an algorithm into a program and to define functions. It is educationally interesting because it is a language still used, and it has many development environments (for example, we will use Dev-C++, which ...
