Hello World - First C Programme



C is a powerful general-purpose programming language. It is fast, portable and available in all platforms.
If you are new to programming, C is a good choice to start your programming journey.
To run C Programming in Windows, download a software called Turbo C++ for Windows from the link given.

“Hello, World!” is a simple program that displays “Hello, World!” on the screen. Since, it’s a very simple program, it is used to illustrate the basic syntax of any programming language.
This program is often used to introduce programming language to a beginner. So, let’s get started.


Include stdio.h header file in your program.
C programming is small and cannot do much by itself. You need to use libraries that are necessary to run the program. The stdio.h is a header file and C compiler knows the location of that file. To use the file, you need to include it in your program using #include preprocessor.

The printf() function.
The printf() is a library function that sends formatted output to the screen (displays the string inside the quotation mark). Notice the semicolon at the end of the statement.
In our program, it displays Hello, World! on the screen.
Remember, you need to include stdio.h file in your program for this to work.
