format file c

What is a c file and how do I open a c file?

A C file is a source code for a C or C++ program. This file may include an entire program's source code, or be one of several source files referenced within a programming project. It can be edited using a basic text editor, but will not show syntax highlighting. The I/O functionality of C is fairly low-level by modern standards; C abstracts all file operations into operations on flow of bytes, which may be "input streams" or "output streams". Unlike some earlier programming languages, C does not support random-access data files; to read from a record in the middle of a file, the programmer must create a stream, point to the middle of the file, and then read bytes in sequence from the stream.
