purpose of C

Discussion in 'C++' started by Web Developer, Jul 31, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    Statement: The orginal purpose for C was for systems programming.

    What does the systems programming mean? I assume writing OS for systems.

    Why are you asking about C in a C++ newsgroup? Are you aware that
    those are two different languages? "Systems programming" is a very
    vague statement. It doesn't really mean squat. Don't assume anything.
