C is an old but powerful programming language. C is used for low level programming where speed and efficiency are key. C is made even more appealing by the fact that the mapping from C to assembly is relatively simple (compared to higher level languages). There are not a large number of features in C that will not also work in C++, but due to its increased speed over C++, many programs today are still written in C.
