I wanna know just HOW fast is C. Is it the fastest language? how fast is it really? Can it be faster. forgive if its a silly question, but is it as fast as your machine will allow it or are there limitations?
Also, when C was first created, what language was used to do so. Obviously you can create C from C but does anyone know. Pascal, BCPL??? ADA??? just really curious cause its been plaguing me.
