History of C

Evolved by Ritchie from two previous programming languages, BCPL and B Used to develop UNIX Used to write modern operating systems


Many slight variations of C existed, and were incompatible Committee formed to create a "unambiguous, machine-independent" definition Standard created in 1989, updated in 1999

Why C?

AITI-KACE All Rights Reserved

The C Standard Library

C programs consist of pieces/modules called functions

A programmer can create his own functions

Advantage: the programmer knows exactly how it works Disadvantage: time consuming

Programmers will often use the C library functions

Use these as building blocks

Avoid re-inventing the wheel

If a built-in function exists, generally make best use it rather than write your own Library functions carefully written, efficient, and portable

Steps in writing a C program

(With a Compiler)

(with an editor)

AITI-KACE All Rights Reserved

C program design

Define problem to be solved by the computer Define program's output Break problem into logical steps Write the program (using an editor)

Any editor can be used gedit, jedit, etc... Your C program must be saved with extension

How to compile a C program

For the sake of simplicity

Go to the bin directory inside your home directory Create a folder call c_programs

We have different types of C compilers

On MS Windows Turbo C, QuickC, etc... On Linux/Unix gcc, g++, etc...

To compile a c program: use the C compiler and provide a file which end with extension (.c)

Anatomy of C Program

First C Program Example 1

1 /* Fig. 2.1: fig02_01.c 2
3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 }

A first program in C */ #include <stdio.h> int main() { printf( "Welcome to C!\n" ); return 0;

int main() C program contain one or more functions, exactly one of which must be main

Parenthesis used to indicate a function ( ) int means that main "returns" an integer value Braces ({ and }) indicate a block printf () - display function A way to exit a function return 0, in this case, means that the program terminated normally

Welcome to C!

Comment /* */ #include <stdio.h> Preprocessor directive

<stdio.h> allows standard input/output operations

Second C Program Example 2

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 } Enter first integer 45 Enter second integer 72 Sum is 117 return 0; /* indicate that program ended successfully */ printf( "Enter first integer\n" ); scanf( "%d", &integer1 ); scanf( "%d", &integer2 ); sum = integer1 + integer2; printf( "Sum is %d\n", sum ); /* prompt */ /* read an integer */ /* read an integer */ /* assignment of sum */ /* print sum */ int main() { int integer1, integer2, sum; /* declaration */ /* Fig. 2.5: fig02_05.c Addition program */ #include <stdio.h>

1. Initialize variables

2. Input

printf( "Enter second integer\n" ); /* prompt */

3. Sum 4. Print
