A program is a set of step-by-step instructions that directs the computer to do the tasks you want it to do and produce the results you want. The C programming language is incredibly popular, and it's easy to see why. Programming in C is efficient and gives the programmer a great deal of control. Many other programming languages like C++, Java and Python were developed using C. Chances are increasing each day that if you're a programmer, you won't use C exclusively for your work.
