You will not go wrong with C being a mature language and a pervasive
one, regardless of its drawbacks. Every language has its downside.
The following website shows an index on programming languages
which shows C is up there.
The availability of support tools and components for C is overwhelming
be it on desktop platforms like Linux, Windows, MacOS, Solaris, etc,
or on embedded systems or game consoles. So, with due respect for the
various languages, if you are going to write a compiler C would be an
