The C programming language and its recent derivatives are now the most used computer languages for developing new computer applications. This chapter begins by providing a brief history of the C programming language and moves on to highlight the main similarities and differences between FORTRAN and C.
The printf function is then introduced along with a number of escape sequences that may be used to format the output of data. Finally, some example programs are provided, demonstrating the syntax for the output of numeric computations.
