1st program in C language

C programming language

Programming is the process of writing an algorithm,lines of codes into a programming language, so that it can be executed by a computer or a similar machine.There are many types of programming,each having their own specific purpose but ultimately linked to making a computer do what we want.Some of the common programming languages are ‘C’ , ‘C++’ , ‘JAVA’ , ‘Python’ , ‘C#’ , ‘Javascript’ , ‘Ruby’ , ‘Swift’.

Here is some insights on C programming languageC programming language

C programming language is the most common,moderately easy to understand programming language one can try while starting to learn programming.Programming,not everyone’s cup of tea,but you should definitely try it once in a lifetime.It lets you think and experience how you can function a machine with certain line of codes.

There are various platforms where you can write you C programming codes.Some of them are Code::blocks,Sublime text,Visual Studio,Dev C++ and the list goes on.

In every programming language,you will be taught to display a text “hello world”.It is the basic step of learning how to code.The code for displaying it in C is given below;

Program to Display “Hello, World!” in C

  1. #include<stdio.h>
  2. #include<conio.h>
  3. int main()
  4. {
  5. printf(“Hello World”);
  6. getch();
  7. }
Hello World                                                
How “Hello, World” program works?
  • The #include is a preprocessor command that tells the compiler to include the contents of <stdio.h>(standard input and output) and <conio.h> (console input and output)file in the program.
  • The <stdio.h> file contains functions such as scanf() and printf() to take input and display output.
  • Writing main() function executes a program
  • Library function printf() tells the compiler to the display whatever written inside it.
  • The getch(); is used to hold the screen until user type any keystroke for the further process of a program.

A program can be done with multiples ways in C or any other programming languages,so don’t get confused if you find alternative ways for a same program.Choose the process that makes you comfortable.
