What is C file?
A C file extension is a file typically created by a compiler or software development tool. It holds program instructions for a specific programming language. A .C file extension is one of the most widely used binary computer code formats in use today, mainly in its original form as an executable program. It's also the most commonly used format for compilers and contains machine code in ASCII text form so it can be read by humans. The .c file extension is part of the C code family of programming languages, which includes two other well-known extensions: .h (for header) and .cpp (for preprocessor).
