Before going to the topic, first I want to give a summary regarding the history of C

Coming back to the topic

Before C language there is a programming language present called B language, which was derived from BCPL (basic combined programming language.

C inherits many features of B and BCPL language or we can say that B is the ancestor of C programming language, That’s why C programming named as C
