A programming language developed in 1972 and commonly used for writing professional software. With only a small number of built-in functions, it requires less memory than other languages, and because most if its functions are not specific to particular computers, it can be used on many different kinds of machines. The Unix operating system was written in C.

(C sharp) An object-oriented programming language that is based on C++ with elements from Visual Basic and Java. Like Java, C# provides automatic garbage collection, whereas traditional C and C++ do not. C# was created by Microsoft and also standardized by the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA). Microsoft designed C# as its flagship programming language for the .NET environment.Why the Number Sign?Because it is similar to the sharp music notation symbol, the number sign (#) is used. See .NET Framework, J#, F# and C.

The designation for the primary hard disk in a Windows PC. The C: evolved from the early personal computers that used A: and B: for their two floppy drives. When the hard disk came along, it naturally became the C: drive. Letters starting with D: and up are used for additional hard disks and CD/DVD drives.Even though floppy drives no longer come with computers, A: and B: are still reserved, and there is the occasional need for a floppy drive to read an old disk. See logical drive.

In 1900 the Ladies Home Journal magazine predicted that by the year 2000 the letters c, x, and q would be banished from the English alphabet.The expectation was that spelling would be phonetic and that those letters would be unnecessary. It was a perfectly logical prediction, but no more correct than the predictions that the use of jetpacks, teleportation, videophones, and smell-o-vision would be widespread. (Note: I make no predictions in this dictionary.) See also Smell-O-Vision, teleportation, and videophone.

In the 1970s, Dennis Ritchie invented a new computer language called C that, as with UNIX in the operating system world, was designed to be nonconstraining and flexible. Though operating systems had typically been written in tight assembler language to extract the highest efficiency from their host machines, Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie realized that both hardware and compiler technology had advanced enough that a whole C operating system could be written. By 1978, the entire environment was ported to computers of varying types.See Also: Programming Languages C, C++, Perl, and Java; Thompson, Ken; UNIX.
