Starting out with C

You need two items to begin using C:

  • You need a platform to write C code, such as a text editor like Notepad or an IDE like VSCode.
  • Use a compiler, such as GCC, to convert the high-level language of C that you wrote into a low-level language that the computer can comprehend.

An IDE is really what?

Integrated Development Environment is referred to as IDE. It is nothing more than a text editor that has been upgraded to make it easier to write code that is cleaner and more effective.

It aids in highlighting specific areas of your codes when a semicolon or bracket is absent and helps you distinguish different parts of your codes with different colours.

There are many IDEs available, such as DEVC++ or Code Blocks, however for this lesson series, we suggest using VS Code.
