Although the mathematicians all over the world offered hard explorations of more than one hundred years, the proof of using pure mathematical theories on the conjecture of twin primes has not born in the world. This paper is trying to apply computer program to prove that corresponding to infinite primes p, there are infinite p+2 primes. As a mathematical proof, the paper uses the concept of mapping to connect the computer program and the pure mathematical theory. With the requirement of a mathematical proof, in accord with the restriction of the integer of which the computer allows to take, an assumption is suggested, and on the basis of it, using the program of C language the paper presents, or regarding the C program as the mapping from infinite p primes to infinite p+2 primes, the paper proves that corresponding to infinite primes p, there are infinite p+2 primes; namely, the conjecture of twin primes is true.
