The below code is a calculator in plain C. It does not take into account the operability of bodmas but just one operation at a time. The main thing in the source code below in the scanf which scans the input as number symbol number just as in case of normal calculator. #include<stdio.h> ...
Refer to the recent articles on Understanding File Handling Functions in C & Understanding Advance File Handling Functions in C C communicates with files using a new datatype called a file pointer. This type is defined within stdio.h, and written as FILE *. A file pointer called output_file is...
A Program to check whether entered matrix is symmetric or not. #include<stdio.h> #include<conio.h> main() { int a,at,k,i,j,m,n; clrscr(); printf("enter the order of matrix"); scanf("%d %d",&m,&n);
Hello to one & all, I did a little bit of programming this weekend (I got myself a new Xbox 360!) .... but not satisfied with the Gaming monolith, I decided to do some game programming myself. So, I implemented that very famous game played by everyone who had access to a computer in the early 90's...
The other day, I just had this thought of exhausting the R.A.M. of my ailing, old P.C. in the hopes that it may trigger off a cataclysmic crash which would render it useless :happy: (so that I finally get that brand new mega-system P.C. which I so yearn! :D ) So I set out to write this program...
Introduction Here I am going to give a simple example of addition, substraction, multiplication etc to check overflow/underflow so that we can minimize buggs/defects in our code The code In your project/product or any place, If you have some operation like Addition, substraction...
Stack memory Let's suppose there is nothing on the stack to begin with. One of the functions either the calling function or the called function depending on the calling convention would start a stack. Lets take a very simple C / C++ program to see how things would work. int func(int i) {...
Introduction After long day's discussion, bool was made as built-in type. Before it lot of other proposals came for bool. There were following proposals. Proposal 1: bool can be implemented by typedef typedef int bool ; It works fine but problem is that if someone overloads functions...
What is a socket? See there are many types of sockets hardware sockets “like electrical sockets” etc. and software “programming sockets” like what i'm going to talk about from now onwards. See , a socket can be thought like any standard way to perform network communication through our system...
Format strings are the strings mainly associated with printf's set of instructions (like printf,fprintf etc..) which basically stands for print format.... These functions accept several arguments and put them on the stack..and as a format specifier is noted in the string the function pops the data...
Function pointers are pointers that can hold the address of a particular type of functions. These pointers, once initialized can be used to call the function whose address they are pointing to. Declaring Function Pointer A function pointer can be declared in following way : <return type of...
Signals are the interrupts. They are a way of providing asynchronous events. For example a user typing ctrl-c on terminal to stop a program. Most of the programs need to handle signals. Every signal has a name like SIGxxx. For example : SIGALRM is the alarm signal that is generated when the timer...
We will discuss the concept of Macros. A Macro is a name given to a piece of code or to a value. Whenever the macro is used in the code, it is replaced by its value at the very first stage (preprocessing stage) of compilation process. They are defined using '#define' directive. For...
In this article, we will discuss different implementations of sleep functions that had flaws to understand how sleep function evolved. Before discussing the sleep function implementations, lets first understand briefly the following two functions : alarm() function From Linux Man page : ...
Recently I have been writing a lot on Linux files and functions related to file I/O. So, extending the discussion further in this article lets discuss two more important Linux functions : A) access(const char *pathname, int mode) This function checks whether the calling process can access...
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...
Today while solving a problem, I had to convert integers to string in C to use its indexing capabilities. One simple solution was to use sprintf, which can be done in 2-3 lines, but i was temped to solve this problem without any string manipulation functions. The Code // Change a positive...
In this tutorial, we'll be looking at the code structure of the 'echo' utility and will try to understand how it works, for those who are unfamilliar with the 'echo' utility, its one of the most basic and most useful utilities in a shell it prints out its arguments on the standard output, if you...
I wanted to make a remake of my previous BAD versions of these 2 functions. I think they are working great now, and they're portable the same as the originals from STD library. ATOI /** // By 85 // boyscout_arg@hotmail.com // etalking.com.ar
Loops are the basic logic building structures in computer programming. It is a way of executing statement(s) repeatedly in specified times, which is termed as iteration. Here different types of loops in C language will be discussed. All of them have same goal, but their way of working is...
