C is a Mid Level programming language made most famous by its use in the Unix operating system.

It is used other places than Unix, of course. It's one of the most-used languages in the world, in fact, and it used in every OS and probably every embedded system due to the clear standards and wide availability of compilers.

Variations on C include:

  • C++ - C plus plus (ISO/IEC 14882:1998)
  • C# - C sharp
  • C-- - C minus minus
  • C89 - C (ISO/IEC 9899:1990)
  • MinGW - Free C/C++ compiler resleased under the GNU GPL
  • Visual C
  • Visual C++
