How to Start C Programming

How to start programming in C language



Every programming language has a syntax of it’s own kind. Likewise C has it’s own syntax.

  1. Header files: Header files are the in-built library  functions. Every program is started with  “#include<stdio.h>”  in the beginning. STDIO stands for Standard Input Output, which contains printf() and scanf().
  2. Main() Function: Main is included in every program, where the execution starts from it. There is to intimate the compiler that the program execution starts from here.
  3. Block of Statements: It is the actual code where we write the logic for the execution of the program.

The Best IDE we can use for C programming 

Crypto prefers to refer ‘ What are the ways to execute a C program here’

Integrated Development Environment in short IDE, which is used by the programmers to execute a code generally. It is a medium between the compiler and programmer for the execution of the code. 


Dev C++ is a good IDE for execution of programs like C and C++ in a windows based operating system. Dev-C++ is a free full-featured integrated development environment distributed under the GNU (General Public License) programming in C and C++. It is bundled with, and uses, the MinGW or TDM-GCC 64bit port of the GCC as its compiler. DEV C++ is written in Delphi.
