Simple Assertion Simple assertion can be implemented using assert(expression) method of assert.h header file. Syntax assert(

11 Most Common Pitfalls in C Programming Language

1. Mixing signed and unsigned integers in arithmetic operations It is usually not a good idea to mix signed and unsigned integers in arithmetic operations. For example, what will be output of following example? #include <stdio.h> int main(void) { unsigned int a = 1000; signed int b = -1;

Graphics (graphics.h) - C Programming

Graphics programming in C used to drawing various geometrical shapes(rectangle, circle eclipse etc), use of mathematical function in drawing curves, coloring an object with different colors and patterns and simple animation programs like jumping ball and moving cars. 1. First graphics program (Draw a line) #include<graphics.h&

Preprocessor Directives - C Programming

The C preprocessor is a macro processor that is used automatically by the C compiler to transform your program before actual compilation (Proprocessor direcives are executed before compilation.). It is called a macro processor because it allows you to define macros, which are brief abbreviations for longer constructs. A macro
