Open C File

C files are widely known for storing source code developed and written in the C and C ++ languages.

Since 1972, the C language was created with the purpose of creating operating systems, applications and even other programming languages.

The language itself was created to optimize the translation of code written in files with extension C to a few low-level or machine-level instructions.

Therefore C files are catalogued as programming code text files, and therefore files with the C extension can be opened with any basic text editor.

However, it is recommended to use programming editors where you can highlight the labels and other words of the code, for greater ease.

A C file has the ability to include both C and C++ source code.

C files can also contain assembly programming snippets, with appropriate references and labels.

There may be a differentiation, as files with a lowercase c may contain code written in C, while files with an uppercase C may contain code written in C ++.

As mentioned above, you can open, create and edit a C file with any text editor, however, one of the following editors is recommended:
