C Programming Basics

C is a general-purpose, procedural, imperative computer programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis M. Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories to develop the UNIX operating system. C is the most widely used computer language. It keeps fluctuating at number one scale of popularity along with Java programming language, which is also equally popular and most widely used among modern software programmers.

  • Small & Simple Programs in C 0/4

  • General Programs 0/7

    There are programs which we use in our routine, or say a programmer's routine. These programs are easy to understand and should help in understanding style of C programming. We shall see here some of these programs and some cool tricks.

  • Loop Examples in C 0/8

    This segment is designed to give the learner an enhanced view of how loops work in c languages. We shall see simple loops like for, while and do-while, along with nested loops.

  • Patterns Examples in C 0/7

    This section is full of examples that uses nested loops in a controlled manner. We may see that the outer loop is controlling the inner one etc. We have taken the simplest examples which are very common too.

  • Array Example Programs in C 0/13

    Array is a collection of homogenous data, arranged in sequential format. Learning the concept of arrays in C is very important as it is the basic data structure. Here, in this section, we shall look into some very useful array programs to give you insight of how C programming language deals with arrays.

  • String Programs in C 0/1

  • Basic Programs 0/6

    These programs made specially to understand the basics of strings in C. These program deals with string as an array of characters.

  • Multi-string Programs 0/5

    These programs has more than one string variables. These should give you an insight of how to work with multiple string variables in C programming language −

  • Long String Programs 0/2

    A sentence or a line can be considered as a long string. The following programs deals with the same concept

  • Mathematical Programs in C 0/16

    This section has been developed to introduce some common mathematical problems that can be solved using c programming language.

  • Linked List Programs in C 0/25
