  Introduction to C, by The Linux Information Project (LINFO)
C is in many ways the most important of the hundreds of programming languages that have been developed in the world to date.
C remains particularly popular in the world of Unix-like operating systems, and, for example, most of the Linux kernel (i.e., the core of the operating system) is written in C. Moreover, it is one of the most frequently studied languages in computer science classes.
C differs significantly from assembly languages in that it is much easier to read and write programs in it, particularly lengthy ones, because its syntax and vocabulary are much closer to those of the English language.

 Information about C programming language
C is a general-purpose, block structured, procedural, imperative computer programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories for use with the Unix operating system.
C's primary use is for "system programming", including implementing operating systems and embedded system applications, due to a combination of desirable characteristics such as code portability and efficiency, ability to access specific hardware addresses, ability to "pun" types to match externally imposed data access requirements, and low runtime demand on system resources.
One consequence of C's wide acceptance and efficiency is that the compilers, libraries, and interpreters of other higher-level languages are often implemented in C. C is used as an intermediate language by some higher-level languages.

 JakeO.com - History of the C Programming Language
The C programming language and its direct descendants are by far the most popular programming languages used in the world today.
C is now such a popular programming language that there have been several descendants from it that are in wide use.
C is also a very lenient language; it allows the programmer to do many things that probably would be caught as errors in a high-level language.

 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.

 The C Programming Language
C is a powerful, flexible language that provides fast program execution and imposes few constraints on the programmer.
C's power and fast program execution come from it's ability to access low level commands, similar to assembly language, but with high level syntax.
The C programming language is used in many different areas of application, but the most prolific area is UNIX operating system applications.

 Amazon.com: The C++ Programming Language: Special Edition (3rd Edition): Bjarne Stroustrup: Books
While The C++ Programming Language is not a C++ tutorial, strictly speaking, anyone learning the language, especially those coming from C, will greatly benefit from the clear presentation of all its elements.
The C++ programming model was new to most of us ten years ago, and Stroustrup's first edition was daunting, to say the least.
The author invented the language and then stayed close to the standardization and innovation process for the duration, always maintaining a careful vigilance over the evolution of his brainchild.

C is still a great first programming language, and its influence is felt in Java and C++, both of which support many programming constructs based on C, while adding support for objects.
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).
Most books on programming, whether it be C or BASIC, often spend most of their bulk discussing information useful only to those who have never laid their hands on a computer...

  C programming language
C is a programming language, designed by Dennis Ritchie during the early 1970s, for writing the UNIX operating system.
By 1973, the C language had became powerful enough that most of the kernel of the Unix operating system was reimplemented in C. This was the first time that the kernel of an operating system had been implemented in a high level language.
C became immensely popular outside Bell Labs during the 1980s, and was for a time the dominant language in systems and microcomputer applications programming.

  C programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By 1973, the C language had become powerful enough that most of the Unix kernel, originally written in PDP-11/20 assembly language, was rewritten in C. This was one of the first operating system kernels implemented in a language other than assembly.
One consequence of C's wide acceptance and efficiency is that the compilers, libraries, and interpreters of other higher-level languages are often implemented in C. C is used as an intermediate language by some higher-level languages.
C allows the use of pointers, a very simple type of reference that records, in effect, the address or location of an object in memory.

 The C Programming Language Torn Apart
The C programming language is a general purpose language which was originally designed for use on the Unix Operating System by Dennis Ritchie.
C is not a machine specific language and a C program can easily be edited to make it work on various platforms.
C is not an interpreted language and unlike Perl a C program has to be first converted into Binary code with the help of a compiler.

 C++ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
C++ supports this (via member functions and friend functions), but does not enforce it: the programmer can declare parts or all of the representation of a type to be public, and is also allowed to make public entities that are not part of the representation of the type.
This is partly because the C++ grammar is not LALR(1).
C++ is sometimes compared unfavorably with single-paradigm object-oriented languages such as Java, on the basis that it allows programmers to "mix and match" object-oriented and procedural programming, rather than strictly enforcing a single paradigm.
