Uses of C Programming
C is a powerful,portable and elegantly structured programming language. since C combine the feature of high level language with element of assembler, it is suitable for both systems as well application programming. It is undoubtedly the most widely used general-purpose language in operating system development.Its infulence is evident in almost all modern programming language.since its standaradization in 1989 ,C has undergoes a series of change and improvement in order to enhance the usefulness of the language ,the version that incorporates in order to enhance the usefulness of the
language. The version that incorporates the new feature is now referred to as C99

It is the most popular computer language today because it is structured,high level,machine independent language.It allows software developer to develop program without worring about the hardware performs where they will be implemented.
C is a low level Programming Language. It’s also Turing-Complete language it's mean any action that computers can do physically can be done using C language. I know it may sound strange, but let me explain.

Uses of C language

Whenever we type any code in a programming language, it is converted to Machine level code, which is understood by the machine. So when I say that  C is a low-level programming language, it means that it is close to Machine Code and able to perform a lot of action directly. Example manipulating memory content using the pointer and exploiting overflow vulnerabilities. Other languages like python which is interpreted, rather than compiled and java show errors while doing this. I think C is the best-known programming language. C is closer to the machine as well as human so it is called as Middle-level Programming Langauge. C can be used to do a verity of tasks such as operating system related and networking related.

Uses Of C programming Language

  • Creating Computer Applications
  • It is used in writing embedded software
  • Various Electronics, industrial and communications products which use microcontrollers.
  • It is also used in developing test code, verification software, etc. for various application and hardware products.
  • C is used in creating compilers of different languages which can take input from other languages and convert it into lower level machine dependent languages.
  • C is designed for system level and embedded software development.

 C is a very flexible language

C is very flexible and versatile, everything from microcontrollers to the operating system is written in C.  Another use of C computer language is that it’s the basis of advanced computer languages. For example, if you want to learn C++ or C# which is object-oriented language, you need to know the C language well beforehand. If you master in C programming, then you can easily learn another specified language.

Why use C?

C produces code that run nearly as fast as code written in assembly language. Some other use of C might be:
  • Print Spoolers
  • Network Drivers
  • Modern Programs
  • Utilities
  • Data Bases

Used in Games and Games Engines
It’s also used to develop games and games engines, because it has an operation that can take it low to the metal, a lot of graphics APIs use it like SDLM, Vulkan, and OpenGL.

Importance of C

It is a roboust language whose rich set of built-in functions and operators can be used to write any type of program.It is many faster than BASIC.For example, a program to increment a variable from 5 to 17000 takes about one seconds while it takes more than 40 seconds in an interpreter BASIC.

C has abilty to extend itself.C program is basically a collection of functions that are supported by C Library.We can continuously add our functions to c library. with the availablity of large number of functions,the programming tasks become simple.
It is portable,so programs once written in C can be run on another machines easily

Computer Communication

A C program is used to communicate with the Computer easily. Before Assembly, languages are used for this purpose, but Assembly languages are very hard to use and remember it. Later using C they developed the Unix operating system.
They also developed many system software like text Editor, Database systems, etc.
C programming language is root for all languages and reason for many modern application developments!.
