What is C?[edit]

C is a compiled language that many other languages are built on. It gives full memory control, and this gives the programmer a lot of freedom. C is not an object-oriented language.

Reasons to use C[edit]

  • Memory management
  • Low level
  • When creating another language
  • When creating a program
  • It's one of the fastest languages, if not THE fastest
  • When creating your own operating system

Reasons not to use C[edit]

  • When you want to quickly develop something
  • When you don't want to manage memory
