Basic dataypes and operators in C Programming

C programming language provides a standard and minimal set of basic data types. Sometimes these are called primitive data types. More complex data structures can be built up from these basic types.

File Handling in C Language

File stores information for many purposes and retrieve whenever required by our programs. A file represents a sequence of bytes on the disk where a group of related data is stored. File is created for permanent storage of data.

Graphics in C Language

In a C language program first step is to initialize the graphics drivers on the computer. This is done using the initgraph method provided in graphics.h library. In the next few pages we will discuss graphics.h library in details.


Each memory location that we use to store the data hase an address in computre memory (RAM). Computer Hardware i.e. CPU uses this addess to reference to a particular data item. A pointer is a variable that stores the address of another variable.

A pointer is a variable that represents the location of a data item, […]
