What is C?

C is a structural or procedural oriented programming language which is machine-independent and extensively used in various applications.

C is the basic programming language that can be used to develop from the operating systems (like Windows) to complex programs like Oracle database, Git, Python interpreter, and many more. C programming language can be called a God’s programming language as it forms the base for other programming languages. If we know the C language, then we can easily learn other programming languages. C language was developed by the great computer scientist Dennis Ritchie at the Bell Laboratories. It contains some additional features that make it unique from other programming languages.

What is C++?

C++ is a special-purpose programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs circa 1980. C++ language is very similar to C language, and it is so compatible with C that it can run 99% of C programs without changing any source of code though C++ is an object-oriented programming language, so it is safer and well-structure programming language than C.

Why learn C and C++?

To understand the concept of data abstraction and encapsulation.

To learn how to overload functions and operators in C++.

To learn how containment and inheritance promote code reuse in C++.

To learn how inheritance and virtual functions implement dynamic binding with polymorphism.

To learn how to design and implement generic classes with C++ templates.

To learn how to use exception handling in C++ programs.
