It's an early implementation of the C programming language standard developed by Microsoft for their operating system MS-DOS and later for Microsoft Windows. Variations of Microsoft C include versions 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 as well as the later Visual Studio editions which supported standard ANSI/ISO C specifications along with additional features to take advantage of platform-specific capabilities in Windows environments.
