Components of C Language---

There are five main componets of C Language-

 (i) Character Set.

 (ii) Data Types.


 (iv) Constant .

(v) Keywords.

(i)Character Set—

Any alphabet,digit, or special symbol used to represent information is denoted by a character. The Characters in C are grouped into four categeries.-

 (a)Letters:A-Z or a-z
