Key differences between C and Elm

SyntaxC uses a procedural syntax with a lot of low-level control over memory and hardware.Elm uses a functional syntax with a focus on immutability and pure functions.
ParadigmC supports procedural and imperative programming paradigms.Elm is a purely functional programming language.
TypingC is statically typed with weak typing.Elm is statically typed with strong typing.
PerformanceC is known for its high performance and low-level control over hardware.Elm prioritizes developer productivity and safety over raw performance.
Libraries and frameworksC has a wide range of libraries and frameworks available for various purposes.Elm has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to C, but it has a strong focus on functional programming and web development.
Community and supportC has a large and active community with extensive documentation and support.Elm has a smaller but passionate community with good documentation and support.
Learning curveC has a steep learning curve due to its low-level nature and manual memory management.Elm has a relatively gentle learning curve, especially for developers familiar with functional programming.
