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...
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...
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...
A simple code of Http-Web-Server in C done by a beginner level programmer. Please suggest if you liked it and lets make it better !! Hows that!!! The Code #include<stdio.h> #include<string.h> #include<arpa/inet.h> #include<netdb.h> #include<sys/types.h> #include<sys/socket.h>
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...
Integers is a fundamental data type in a C program, They are used to represent a finite subset of mathematical integers, C Provides us with a suite of functions, and quite a lot of modifiers for manipulating these integers , but if these functions and modifiers are not used properly and carefully...
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...
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 : ...
After writing my previous article Virus Code in Linux - C Code That Changes it's Process Name Run Time, I wondered if a process can change its name then why cannot it change its PID. And what if a process can change both its name and PID after lets say every 1 second? Well it will be a difficult...
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...
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 article I'm going to show you how to change value of variable during run time. There are many tools around how to do this easily, but I will focus on the way doing it programatically, specifically using C language. Tools I will use: Cheat Engine 6.0 Here is a simple code for login, I...
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...
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...
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
There are many built in data types in C. But sometimes, the built in data types are not enough to perform the required tasks. In that case, some custom data type can be built to meet the necessary requirements. In this tutorial, the following custom data types are going to be discussed: ...
