scanf family functions support scanset specifiers which are represented by %[]. Inside scanset, we can specify single character or range of characters. While processing scanset,… Read More
The C99 standard allows variable sized arrays (see this). But, unlike the normal arrays, variable sized arrays cannot be initialized. For example, the following program… Read More
Most of the times declarations are simple to read, but it is hard to read some declarations which involve pointer to functions. For example, consider… Read More
Scope of an identifier is the part of the program where the identifier may directly be accessible. In C, all identifiers are lexically(or statically) scoped.… Read More
