  C programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
C is a relatively minimalist programming language that operates close to the hardware, and is more similar to assembly language than to most high-level languages.
Indeed, C is sometimes referred to as "portable assembly", reflecting its important difference from low-level languages such as assembly languages: C code can be compiled to run on almost any computer, more than any other language in existence, while any given assembly language runs on at most a few very specific models of computers.
C was created with one important goal in mind: to make it easier to write large programs with fewer errors in the procedural programming paradigm, but without encumbering the writer of the C compiler by complex language features.

 C Sharp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
C# was designed as a language that would provide a balance of C++ with rapid development, Visual Basic, Delphi, and Java.
C# is, in some sense, the programming language which most directly reflects the underlying.NET Framework on which all.NET programs run, and it depends strongly on this framework; there is no such thing as an unmanaged C# program.
The "sharp" suffix has been emulated by a number of other.NET languages that are variants of existing languages, including J# (Microsoft's implementation of Java), A# (from Ada), F# (presumably from System F, the type system used by the ML family), and Gtk# (a.NET wrapper for GTK+).

 History of C++
C was originally developed for and implemented on the UNIX operating system, on a PDP-11 computer by Dennis Ritchie.
C combines the elements of high-level languages with the functionality of assembly language and has occasionally been referred to as a middle-level computer language.
C was a direct descendant of the language B. The language B was developed by Ken Thompson in 1970 for the new UNIX OS.

 LEARN C/C++ TODAY
C is often called a middle-level computer language as it combines the elements of high-level languages with the functionalism of assembly language.
C++ is actually an extendible language since we can define new types in such a way that they act just like the predefined types which are part of the standard language.
There is a very interesting paper called `A development of the C language' by Dennis Ritchie that traces the origin of the language we know and love today.

The C programming language is a popular and widely used programming language for creating computer programs.
You will be able to read and write code for a large number of platforms -- everything from microcontrollers to the most advanced scientific systems can be written in C, and many modern operating systems are written in C. The jump to the object oriented C++ language becomes much easier.

 Chistory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
C came into being in the years 1969-1973, in parallel with the early development of the Unix operating system; the most creative period occurred during 1972.
Within procedures, the language's interpretation of the pointers was identical to that of the array variables: a pointer declaration created a cell differing from an array declaration only in that the programmer was expected to assign a referent, instead of letting the compiler allocate the space and initialize the cell.
The language changes during this period, especially around 1977, were largely focused on considerations of portability and type safety, in an effort to cope with the problems we foresaw and observed in moving a considerable body of code to the new Interdata platform.

The C language was based on two (now defunct) languages: BCPL, written by Martin Richards, and B, written by Ken Thompson in 1970 for the first UNIX system on a PDP-7.
C allows us to perform arithmetic operations using pointers, but beware that the ``unit'' in pointer arithmetic is the size (in bytes) of the object to which the pointer points.
C treats the name of the array as if it were a pointer to the first element--this is important in understanding how to do arithmetic with arrays.

The C++ Primer is long though, so if you want to learn C++ the right way, skills like this take time and effort, there is no free lunches here, but this is regarded as the best C++ book regardless of level: starter, intermediate, or very advanced master.
After all, most of the features in C++ interact heavily with other functions, so it's not really possible to explain some things without explaining their relationships (even if they are relating to things that the text has not yet brought up).
As the inventor of the C++ language itself, Stroustrup is the closest person to the actual syntax, and short of reading the ISO spec, you simply won't find a more comprehensive tome on the subject.

The book focuses on the language itself - this is no hands-on book (no explanations on how to use this compiler or that debugger, though it is a little biased toward Unix) in a clear, concise, and thorough way covering all of the language and it's standard libraries.
I especially liked the excercises (the solutions come in a seperate volume) and the C source code examples of how some of the library routines are (or may be) implemented.
This book is *not* for people who study C as their first programming language (those would be better served with a pair of books - a first course in programming and compiler guide).
