That's not the point of if-else statements, so I don't know why you'd want to do it...

But if you want to get technical, I don't think it is possible. If you were really set on it, you could maybe nest an if-else statement, I guess.

Use goto. From if's last statement jump to a statement using goto.

Then do not try stuff like executing if and else. They also could not be considered good

No, you can't, because the whole point of if/else is to do one thing if an expression is TRUE and another if the expression is FALSE. If you want to execute both blocks of code then you need to rejig the expression, for example instead of
Code:
if (test) { ... }
else { ... }
which is almost equivalent to
Code:
if (test) { ... }
if (!test) { ... }
(almost, because in this construction you could set test to FALSE in the first if block and cause the second to be executed), whereas if/else doesn't allow for that) you could use
Code:
if (test || do_both) { ... }
if (!test || do_both) { ... }

#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
pid_t pid;
pid = fork();
if(pid==0)
{
printf("\nIF IS RUNNING\n");
}
else
{
printf("\nELSE IS RUNNING\n");
}
return 0;
}

yes i think i remember there is a code exist for it though i don't remember the code now

There is not any logical explanation for it but i think this code is a part of class room teaching in indian colleges.

teachers consider this question as sacred

you can find this question in every year question paper of our college.
