The phenomenon of stuffing excessive data which is beyond the capacity of the allocated memory is known as buffer overflow. In Simple words we can say that for lets say 'n' bytes of memory, if we try to store any number of values which is greater than 'n', then the values beyond the nth value will...

The motivation behind writing this article came from the fact that there are still many books/tutorials/softwares etc where I have seen 'void main' being used instead of 'int main'. Still most of the C/C++ newbies are taught to start practice coding with 'void main'. Even I started practicing C in...
