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...

Many of us know that both C and C++ do padding when allocating memory for structure. But only few know that why the complier does it. In short, for the efficient access of the memory for OS, padding is required. In long words, the instruction can be fetched/written one machine word at a time....

Typecasting is simply a mechanism by which we can change the data type of a variable, no matter how it was originally defined. When a variable is typecasted into a different type, the compiler basically treats the variable as of the new data type. Example Lets go for a very simple example : ...

Huffman encoding is a compression technique used to compress data for transmission.This program takes string as input from user and shows its encoded form as output with some intermediate outputs as well. The purpose of it is to reduce the number of bits used for each character for its transmission...

Introduction This article explains what downcast are, how to make it safe, and so forth. However, before learning what downcast are, you must be familiar with polymorphism. Background Can you guess what is down-casting…yes it’s an opposite mechanism of up-casting. In upcast the...

In computer programming, a bitwise operation operates on one or two bit patterns or binary numerals at the level of their individual bits. On many computers, bitwise operations are slightly faster than addition and subtraction operations and significantly faster than multiplication and division...

Introduction Itís my first post here. I will discuss on Date & Time Management Functions of C. Though if someone is only interested about getting the time and date, then it can be done by some trivial function but the goal of this detail discussion is understanding the bios as well as...

Data files are very essential part of in computer programming. The data we use while programming using the variables of different data types, are unavailable after the program execution. So,there is no way to retrieve the data if we further need. Here comes the necessity of data files. FILE...
