The computing world has undergone a revolution since the publication of The C Programming Language in 1978. Big computers are much bigger, and personal computers have capabilities that rival the mainframes of a decade ago. During this time, C has changed too, although only modestly, and it has spread far beyond its origins as the language of the UNIX operating system.

The growing popularity of C, the changes in the language over the years, and the creation of compilers by groups not involvedin its design, combined to demonstrate a need for a more precise and more contemporary definition of the language than the first edition of this book provided. In 1983, the American ' National Standards Institute (ANSI) established a committee whose goal was to produce "an unambiguous and machine-independent definition of the language C," while still retaining its spirit. The result is the ANSI standard for C.

Definitely not c#, at least not for the core, its too slow for that, its most likely c with some critical parts probably in direct machine code. A language like c# would be perfect for the UI part not critical on speed and much easier to manage c# code than c, but I am afraid it is probably not used for that either, because I suspect this would be a problem sharing the same code in consoles.

PS. To Javaniceday, why do you need a programming language to do this? I think you can perfectly show how youd like the career to be using something like powerpoint...
