Summary

API is an acronym for Application Program Interface.

High Level Languages that cannot do some stuff, can call an API to do some standard 400 function. In addition, an API is useful when thought of as a pre-tested, reusable function.

The API documentation is generally written for C programmers to understand. RPG and Cobol programmers might find some of the C conventions confusing, especially Binary.
