"C is a high level, procedural/structured, and general
purpose programming language and resembles few other high level
languages such as Fortran, Pascal, and PL/1. However, we cannot
call the C language as a "Purely High Level Language".
"C stands somewhere between the high-level languages meant for
carrying on special activities and the low level languages such as
assembly language of a machine because of some features like
"System Independence", "Limited Data Type", "High Flexibility", it
is considered as a powerful language C has also become popular
because of its portability across systems."
