Some Facts

C is a procedural imperative language that compiles to native code. It inspired many others languages as c++, c# and Java.

It can be used on almost any hardware or operating system. Even if it implements low level access to memory, the programs written with this language function independently from machines.

It can be used to write a variety of applications: from operating systems ( for desktop and smartphones) to browsers. It can be used to create compilers, databases as well as graphic design tools.

How to install it

To use the language on both Ubuntu, and Windows 10 you can install the GCC compiler.

On Ubuntu: To install the gcc compiler just follow the same instructions as for the C++

sudo apt update
sudo apt install build-essential

To check the installed version, just type the following command:

gcc --version

On windows: The same steps as for the C++ language. Install Code::Block IDE with the mingw-setup included. And when launching the IDE for the first time, just select the GNU GCC Compiler. This way you will be sure that the installation was successful.
