History of C Language:

There were numerous programming languages that were developed before C language with an objective to overcome the tedious architecture of old languages. Dennis Ritchie in 1972 developed a more user friendly language at bell laboratories of AT&T (American Telephone & Telegraph), located in U.S.A. This language was considered as a High Level Language and was named as C.

C inherited many behavior from its ancestors. Along with the inherited features, some more unique features were developed in C that made it the most basic programming language and the mother of all programming languages. Even today when there are several new and modified programming languages already developed, C has its own importance and still maintains its value.
