Re: Advantages and disadvantages of C language

First of all C language is the basic programming language which is the mother of all modern language. C was developed in the AT & T lab. The major advantage of C language is that it is the basic to learn all other languages that are available in the market. If you want to be programing developer then you have to learn it. The disadvantage of these language is there is no runtime checking, as the program extends it is very difficult to fix the bugs, there is no strict type checking.
