C Programming Language, developed by Dennis Ritchie in 1972 is an evergreen programming language. It is the backbone of the Unix operating system and paved the way for the development of object-oriented programming. C has been around for 30 years, and there is a ton of source code available. This means there's a lot to learn from, and a lot to use. C programming language is that which sits close to the operating system. This feature makes it an efficient language because system level resources, such as memory, can be accessed easily. This language has features like it is a fast, flexible, portable and structured programming language having a rich library making the C programming language not to have an expiry date. C programming language?s closeness to the hardware, great portability makes it ideal for low level development for things such as operating systems, kernels and embedded systems. Its versatility, efficiency and good performance makes it an excellent choice for high complexity data manipulation software, like databases or 3D animation. The fact is, that many programming languages today are better than C for their intended use which doesn?t mean that they beat C in all areas. C is still unsurpassed when performance is the priority. The C programming language is a general-purpose language with almost endless applications like in operating systems, language compilers, network drivers, language interpreters, and system utilities areas of development. Even today Facebook uses C and C++ in their applications because of its lower disk space usage and performance. The world is running on C-powered devices. C is the past, the present, the future in many areas of software. Hence, the C programming language is the lingua franca of programming. Hence, it can be concluded that C PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE ? STILL RULING THE WORLD!
