    What are C keywords made from?


    I have a short question.
    Are the C keywords made from BCPL and B languages?

    I guess you could look up the keywords of those languages on the internet and answer your own question - no?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper

    If you mean "are they implemented in BCPL or B?", then no, those languages hardly exist any longer.

    C source code is parsed by the compiler to generate native machine code. Some compilers generate intermediate assembler code that is assembled to machine code.

    The compiler translates high level language into machine level language.So C language need compiler.
