How Many of You Use the C Programming language?


red_dragon_here

Just wanted to know how many of you are currently using C language for programming.If you can tell what sort of programs you do, it would be useful.


bhavesh

I still use C for programming, infact I only know two languages (C and C++). If you have any question then ask, I/we will try to find the solution.

C is definitely a good language to start programming i suppose. Once you get strong with c , you could start playing with C++. Bothe have an ocean of possibilities to work with. At the moment , i am using C++ . It is great to use it as it is t oriented. You can do lots of programs in C like Games, an editor software package and so on. So there are many area you cna deal with.

I'm currently using C++ and I like it because it's very flexible compared to other languages. I'm mainly using it for games but it is great for all sorts of stuff.

i <3 c++i use the md dos version though, i dont have any other compiler other than turbo c++ 3.0 DOS... but i still manage. I have made a header file that allows me to make 3d images and stuff with the lineto and moveto methods. I like to make games. Ive made all kinds of games like a mini-rpg type of game (not really an rpg), pong, and i also made this mini one-octive keyboard for my computer science class my sophmore year. But i havent been messing with c++ lately, ive been working with java ^.^ i <3 java

I do not know about C++, I had a brief introduction to it though while programming Symbian OS with C++. I have been learning java ever since I came into the programming world. Based on what I have experienced with C++, as compared to Java, it does require a header file where all the local methods are declared for further use. But other than that, what are the significant differences? I do know that the syntax is a little different, for example they are using printf() for the use of printing messages as compared to Java's System.out.println()

First of let make it clear we had
first "C" then "C++" and then "JAVA"

in between c an c++, we have c with OOPS ( actually im working on this ).

C++ is best for faster performance. where java is easy to write big programs.

just for your information, photoshop, flash all these are in C++. So from my side C++ is the BEST

I know some C, but not all of it. I took a class freshman year on it, but it wasn't a very long class. I program old DOS programs for windows lol. Not a lot of graphics experience, but id like to get more


master_bacarra

i used to like c when i was in my early years in college, since i use it to do my programs that were required in class. right now i'm using c for creating a compiler (one of my major subjects), but in most of my subjects i use java. i've made a transfer like two or three years ago because java helps to simplify most of the tasks that i usually have a hard time doing in c.

Yeah, C was pretty popular this days. C++ was popular back ahead before Java...The problem is that C was developed open-source and not for commercialization purposes. Java was a bit flexible and defeats some leaks that C and C++ have... Moreover, Java had a commercial version of their Language. So development and standardization(?) of Java was not that hard.And yeah, I use C. I use C for basic programs that require mid-level programming with high-level programming... It was fun learning C..Data structures has to be implemented by the programmer themselves in C.There are pointers that can manipulate memory. While some languages dont have pointers and data structures was defined by the authors and developers of the language themselves so it defeated the purpose of having a more imaginative and creative mind(IMHO). But in large system scales that requires you to focus on data construct than the logical construct, OOPL's are a must. ^_~


TheWakeUpCall

I don't like software written with JAVA much because it takes up LOADS of your ram and cpu, it just slows your computer down so much! I think I am going to have to learn C++, it sounds great. How long have you guys been learning it to make stuff like pong and stuff?


mail4kaja

In my personal point of view, C and C++ is ever-lasting and very good language for developing applications and system-side programs.I love C language, you can use it to access each and every corner of the system. I love it, because it is highly flexible... not like Java that is saturated with built-in packages.'C' Rocks...

No, you can't compare C and Java that way. Both are different things and founds applications in different fields. Java is used mainly in web based applications, you can't use C or C++ there. C is used mainly as system software and for window applications Visual C++ is used.

So to become a good all round programmer you have to learn C as well as Java. You can't replace all Java applications with C.

So to become a good all round programmer you have to learn C as well as Java.

To become a good all around programmer, you'd have to learn one of every type of language, e.g.low-level, structured middle-level, object-oriented high level and the in betweens like C and C++.
Just saying, doesn't have to be Java. Could just be Python.

Actually, I've been using C for everything from hello world (when I just started programming) to OpenGL games and math research. From my point of view, object oriented programming isn't necessary - even though C++ is a good language- and the abstraction just seems to bloat executables. So I would say C is the better language. Then again, I'm one of those people who thinks that low level languages are the solution to everything. So yeah, that's my view on the C >=< C++ debate.

mathmate

I started using the C programming language quite a few years back. Although at the time I found it difficult to use because of the lack of a String primitive, in retrospect, I find that it actually helped me understand the concept of pointers.I was and am still using Borland C (and C++) using command line compiler, even though an IDE is available. I have Microsoft's C++.net, but I rarely use it. I use C and C++ mostly for numerical calculations, applications that do not require GUI, tests, and so on. I still find it an excellent compiler for speed and flexibility.


vipervoid

Im still using C right now! Its really good to use! especially when you're doing you're work on linux.. Its really handy to have a background in C!


tats

as for my job is concern , i still use C , and bout the program , its more on formulas, mathematics, calculation.


Tetraca

I've learned C and I simply hate using it because I will never use half its "features" nor do I want to use them. I stick with FreeBASIC if I can, and Pascal otherwise if I need a compiled application. PHP, however, is my favorite language to use: It's like C without all the things I hate.C++ was even worse with the cout function and all the object-oriented ideas I don't like to work with. Don't even get me started on Java.


AlphaOfDoom

I use all versions of C. If it is editing images, or games, or whatever else you can think of. I use many languages though, I suppose I would learn if I am taking my career into programming, right?


zamaliphe

will i know c and c++but i just like c when i use it on linuxi can realy fell the power on c and the power of linuxi do problime solving meaning that i didnot rota complete app yetbut when i get problime with any thing i wrot a solve for iti also use linux bash
