Nowadays, with so many cushier, higher-level languages around that offer you much more help, C's beauty seems a bit... austere. But it's still an extraordinarily compact and powerful language, the acme of universal portability, and the fact that it's survived decades in an industry littered with the corpses of last years' languages is an astounding testament.

You could learn it in a couple of days, Lori, with the little white K&R book. It's very simple.

I rather think is was the non-telephone work done by Bell Labs, legally a non-profit funded by 0.1% of every phone bill and the greatest industrial lab in human history, rather than the work done by AT&T.
