    You're looking for what you (presumably an electrical engineer) might use C for? . . . That's kind of like saying:
    "The written word is all very well, but what do you use it for? Why write English?"
    It's such a broad question.

    Did you try googling for "c programming electrical engineer" or something?

    Embedded systems, perhaps.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
