Description:C is the predecessor to the language B (invented by Ken Thompson) and the language B was influenced by the language BCPL(invented by Martin Richards). C "took the crown" so to speak from Language B in the 1970s (1972 to be exact).
C was originally designed for use on UNIX operating systems, but it very quickly spread to multiple platforms. When Invented, C was mainly used for creating programs that would control hardware but not so long after, it became common to see C applications being programmed for regular computer use.
