C is a free and open-source general-purpose, procedural programming language. The language supports structured programming, lexical variable scope, and recursion, with a static type system. By design, C provides constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions. C was first created and released in 1972 at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie, today C is used in systems where you need absolute control over memory management such as OS kernels and other mission critical software.
