Re: What are the limitations of 'c' language

Below are the disadvantages of C which is know:

i). 'C' does not support Runtime Checking.

ii). 'C' does not support strict type checking
There is no strict type checking
e.g. We can pass integer value to float type variable.

iii). As the program extends in 'C', it becomes very difficult and inconvenient to fix the bugs.

The 'C' language is the Procedure oriented language.But the 'C++' follows the Object Oriented Programming(OOPs concept)
The main disadvantage of procedure oriented language is that the program become more complex as coding increases. But in OOP supported languages, If code is large we can create small program and link into the another program. OOPs support re-usability while 'C' does not.

Hi frioend,

I am also "C" language user but I don't think there is more disadvantage in "C". Why are you thinking about disadvantage ?You should think how much advantages "C" has.
The only disadvantage which I know is the pointer and complexity of coding
