    The initial development of C occurred at AT&T Bell Labs between 1969 and 1973; according to Ritchie, the most creative period occurred in 1972. It was named "C" because its features were derived from an earlier language called "B", which according to Ken Thompson was a stripped-down version of the BCPL programming language.

    The C language is called so because of a very simple reason. It was named after the language, that was called B. The very first Unix systems were written in low level assembler language.
