In this article we'll be learning how we can improve our C code by using Macros instead of functions. How simple functions can be converted into macros to save on some CPU instructions. Some basic knowledge of C and a little bit Assembly is considered as pre-requisites. The Code We'll be...

The below program calculates the largest no among the no entered but it just calculates as user inputs them. This can be used with files and as you move ahead in file you can store the max and the min value in a variable when parsing the file. #include<stdio.h> int largest(int,int); void...

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...

This time we checked Apache HTTP Server with PVS-Studio. As we had expected, we found errors there. The errors are few. We expected this either. Other developers come across this situation too while testing PVS-Studio on their projects. Unfortunately, the first conclusion you would like to draw...

Function is a block of statements that performs a specific task. It is reusable portion of the code and a very effective way to modularize your program. For example, you may need to perform different arithmetic operations in your program like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division....

The fork() unix API provides mechanism to spawn a new process from an existing process. This function is called once in a program but it returns twice. Once in parent process and once in its child process(the new spawned process becomes the child process).The return value of this function in child...

We all have been using Functions since we stepped into programming. Numerous times we have called a function with some arguments to it. We all know that the basic declaration of a function is : <return-type><function-name>(<comma seperated list of arguments>); For example : int func(int...
