Introduction Mouse has revolutionized the computer world. In GUI mouse is very essential for user interaction. it is a simple input device which allows you to point and execute interface in a random and faster manner than the keyboard which provides sequential interface. Mouse Programming is a...
Introduction In computer Science and mathematics sorting is any technique that puts elements of a list in a certain numerical or lexicographical order.We will discuss some of the commonly used sorting algorithms which has been implemented in various high level languages like C, C++,...
Introduction In computer science a search algorithm is a technique of finding a particular item among a collection of items. Searching for data is the second most common activity (after sorting data) necessary for creating many types of programs. Sequential Search In this technique we...
Today we will discuss about Sockets programming paradigm, elements of Sockets applications, and the Sockets API. The Sockets API allows to develop applications that communicate over a network. The network can be a local private network or the public Internet. An important item about Sockets...

During C programming, file operations are pretty common. And when you are writing programs in C on Linux, two familiar terms related to file operations are File Pointers and File Descriptors. We know both are different, but what are they? This article will focus on understanding what are file...
As the name suggests, volatile specifier indicates the compiler that the value of the variable is volatile i.e. it can change unexpectedly. But, the question comes why do we need to even specify that a variable value is volatile. The Requirement for volatile specifiers Our compilers...
malloc allocates certain amount of memory during program execution and free de-allocates memory previously allocated using a call to functions like malloc, calloc or realloc. Memory leak can occurs when a program allocates memory but does not release it. Understanding malloc() & free() ...
Type casting is an explicit type conversion requested by the programmer to achieve its objective in the program. During any kind of computations involving various data variables of different data types, leads to the need of typecasting. Syntax used: (Data-type-2)<variable/expression of data...
What is Dameon Process? A Daemon process is a process which is not associated with any terminal and hence is supposed to run in background. Since, a daemon process involves background processing, it is recommended it should not include any user interaction. Therefore, it should be clear about...
What are Hash Tables? Hash table is a data structure to store key value pairs for all situations. So it is like a table with each entry has a key and a value corresponding to it. So, it is an efficient way of mapping and accessing data. An abstract illustration of hash table: -> Data...
Algorithms are the riches of any programming language. The major objective of any algorithm is being efficient and optimized. For any logical scenarios, the prime and foremost is designing an algorithm. In this article, we shall we be discussing one such scenario to determine the k-th maximum /...
The Need Most of our articles over here are focused on Linux programming. However, many of us, especially beginners are still comfortable and much used to Windows environment, the look and feel of it. And also,many out of them tend to avoid Linux programming because of the pain of installing...
Strings are paramount datatype for any real use case scenario. However, in C, there is no basic datatype as ‘string’. A string is understood as a collection set of characters i.e. in programmatic language, an array of characters, which are: Directly assigned in double quotes Terminated by a...
When an ELF executable is executed, a process is created and its process image is create in the RAM. However, it is here in the process image in RAM, all the variables are assigned memory. Sometimes memory is allocated statically i.e. defined how much memory at the compile time, and at times it has...
For a given problem, there maybe many solutions, but we always look for a ‘better’ solution. So, how do we determine which solution is ‘better’? In the context of algorithms and programs, we consider a solution as ‘better’ when it uses the minimum resources. Hence, an efficient program will always...
As it is said, great things are in small ones. Its someway true in C as well. Working on bits rather than bytes, and other bigger data structures leverage implementations in speed and space efficiency. With really high end computers coming up these days, bitwise operations may not be that useful in...
GCC provides quite a lot of builtin functions. These functions are part of standard C offered by the compiler and may come in various variants as per the gcc. These are also termed as hardware specific functions which are internally implemented in assembly or we can say machine instructions, with...
The keyword ‘static’ has been widely used in many programming languages. I know it is there in Java, C and C++. I am pretty sure, it is must be used in other languages as well, even though it might depict different attributes and characteristics. However, we are going to learn about the keyword...
Error handling has always been dominantly vital in programming. It has become a bit more sophisticated with the object oriented languages, however even in the system programming language like C, error handling is being offered in its own simple ways. Introduction To swim deep into the...
