# Curly brace family

The curly brace family of programming languages is said to include C, C++, Java and C# among others. The name derives from the common syntax of the languages, where blocks of statements are enclosed in curly braces. For example:

 for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
printf("%d", i);
}
