Begin Your Journey with C

To initiate your learning in C, you require the following:

  • A text editor for crafting C code
  • A compiler like GCC to convert the C code into a machine-understandable language

There are various text editors and compilers to select from. For this tutorial, an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will be used by us.

Setting up the C IDE

An IDE is a software suite that consolidates the basic tools needed to write and test the code. Popular IDEs include Code::Blocks, Eclipse, and Visual Studio which are all free to use and facilitate both the editing and debugging of C code.

Note: Although web-based IDEs can be used, they typically have more limitations compared to their desktop counterparts.

We recommend starting with Code::Blocks. The latest version can be downloaded from here.

Let's Start with C

Create your first C file by following the steps below:

  1. Open Codeblocks
  2. Go to File > New > Empty File
  3. Write the following C code and save the file as myfirstprogram.c:
#include <stdio.h>, int main() { printf("Welcome to Fynd Academy!"); return 0;}

The above code might seem incomprehensible for now, we'll break it down in later chapters. For now, concentrate on running the code.

Executing Your Code

After writing the code, it's time to run it. In Codeblocks, navigate to Build > Build and Run. Your result will look something like this:

Welcome to Fynd Academy!

Great job! You've just written and executed your first C program.

Your C Learning Journey with Fynd Academy

Learning C with Fynd Academy is facilitated by our "Practice it Yourself" tool. It concurrently illustrates the code and the outcome, simplifying every new part you learn:

#include <stdio.h>int main() { printf("Welcome to Fynd Academy!"); return 0;} Welcome to Fynd Academy!

<p><strong>C Introduction</strong></p> <p><strong>Understanding C</strong></p> <p>C is a comprehensive programming language born out of the ingenious mind of Dennis Ritchie at Bell Laboratories in 1972. Although it's a vintage language, its popularity never fades due to its fundamental significance in computer science. Its strong tie with UNIX is noteworthy since it was specially designed for the UNIX operating system development.</p> <p><strong>Reasons to Learn C</strong></p> <p> <ul> <li>C prides itself as one of the most sought-after programming languages globally.</li> <li>Knowledge in C lays a great foundation for learning other trending programming languages like Java, Python, C++, C#, and more due its similar syntax structure.</li> <li>When speed is a concern, C outshines its peers like Java and Python with remarkable efficiency.</li> <li>The versatility of C is evident through its wide use in various applications and technology domains.</li> </ul> </p> <p><strong>The unique identity of C and C++</strong></p> <p>C++ takes its roots from C, inheriting a similar syntax. The distinguishing factor between the two is the support for classes and objects within C++, which C lacks.</p> <p><strong>Take your First Step</strong></p> <p>Immerse yourself in the basics of the C language through this tutorial.
