C Interview Questions & Answers - Learning Mode

C is a high-level and general purpose programming language that is ideal for developing firmware or portable applications. Originally intended for writing system software, C was developed at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie for the Unix Operating System (OS) in the early 1970s. With the increasing popularity of object-oriented programming, C is being rapidly replaced as "the" programming language by C++, a superset of the C language that uses an entirely different set of programming concepts, and by Java, a language similar to but simpler than C++, that was designed for use in distributed networks.

Question: What is the difference between text and binary modes?

#define perplexed 3
#ifdef perplexed
#undef perplexed

Question: How do you print an address ?

Answer: The safest way is to use printf() (or fprintf() or sprintf()) with the %P specification. That prints a void pointer (void*). Different compilers might print a pointer with different formats.

Your compiler will pick a format that?s right for your environment.
If you have some other kind of pointer (not a void*) and you want to be very safe, cast the pointer to a void*:

printf( %Pn, (void*) buffer ); Source:

Question: main()
signed int bit=512, i=5;
printf("%dn", bit >> (i - (i -1)));

Answer: Ans:256,256,256,256,256 depending upon i value it prints 5times Source:
Question: main()
unsigned int bit=256;
printf("%d", bit);
unsigned int bit=512;
printf("%d", bit);

Answer: Ans is 256,512 because unsigned is data type.blockwise it will print Source:
Question: How can do search for data in a linked list ?

Answer: Unfortunately, the only way to search a linked list is with a linear search, because the only way a linked list?s members can be accessed is sequentially.

Sometimes it is quicker to take the data from a linked list and store it in a different data structure so that searches can be more efficient. Source:
Question: What does it mean-


Answer: a[i]=i+i;

its just simple... an assignment statement.

an i'th element of array a (i.e.,) a[i] is going to have a value i+i;

eg; lets i=3 means


Question: main()
signed int bit=512, mBit;
mBit = ~bit;
bit = bit & ~bit ;
printf("%d %d", bit, mBit);

Answer: Two's complement:

00000000000000001111111111111111 "Not operation" ->

11111111111111110000000000000000 assign to int, since highest position is 1, then Not operation again, ->

10000000000000001111111111111111, then plus 1->

10000000000000010000000000000000, it is - 513
Question: main()

Answer: Ans will be 1

Question: main()
int i, j;
scanf("%d %d"+scanf("%d %d", &i, &j));
printf("%d %d", i, j);

Answer: In the statement scanf("%d %d"+scanf("%d %d", &i, &j)); the first two values are read into i and j. for the third value it is a null pointer assignment. so segmentation fault occurs at run time. Source:
Question: main()
char *a = "Hello ";
char *b = "World";
printf("%s", strcpy(a,b));

Answer: "World".when we use strcpy..contents of a are overwritten. Source:

Names in Alphabetica Source:
Question: What is a null pointer assignment error? What are bus errors, memory faults, and core dumps?

Answer: These are all serious errors, symptoms of a wild pointer or subscript.
Null pointer assignment is a message you might get when an MS-DOS program finishes executing. Some such programs can arrange for a small amount of memory to be available ?where the NULL pointer points to (so to speak).

If the program tries to write to that area, it will overwrite the data put there by the compiler.

When the program is done, code generated by the compiler examines that area. If that data has b Source:
Question: void main ()
int x = 10;
printf ("x = %d, y = %d", x,--x++);

Question: What is page thrashing ?

Answer: Some operating systems (such as UNIX or Windows in enhanced mode) use virtual memory. Virtual memory is a technique for making a machine behave as if it had more memory than it really has, by using disk space to simulate RAM (random-access memory).

In the 80386 and higher Intel CPU chips, and in most other modern microprocessors (such as the Motorola 68030, Sparc, and Power PC), exists a piece of hardware called the Memory Management Unit, or MMU.

The MMU treats memory as if it wer Source:
