What is the difference between array and ordinary variable in C?

Array is the set of an multiple values where as variable can store single value at a time.

• The difference between the definition of array and ordinary variable is the, array is always declared, initialized, and accessed using subscript whereas ordinary variable do not have any subscript.


• The syntax for ordinary variable definition is data_type v1, v2, ….;

• And the syntax for array variable is data_type v1[N1],v2[N2],…; where v1,v2 are name of variable and N1, N2 are the integer constants indicating the maximum size of array.

History Of C..

In the beginning was Charles Babbage and his Analytical Engine, a machine
he built in 1822 that could be programmed to carry out different computations.
Move forward more than 100 years, where the U.S. government in
1942 used concepts from Babbage’s engine to create the ENIAC, the first
modern computer.
Meanwhile, over at the AT&T Bell Labs, in 1972 Dennis Ritchie was working
with two languages: B (for Bell) and BCPL (Basic Combined Programming
Language). Inspired by Pascal, Mr. Ritchie developed the C programming
language.

My 1st Program...


#include
#include
void main ()
{
clrscr ();
printf ("\n\n\n\n");
printf ("\t\t\t*******Pankaj *******\n");
printf ("\t\t\t********************************\n");
printf ("\t\t\t\"Life is Good...\"\n");
printf ("\t\t\t********************************");
getch ();
}

Next Step...


#include
#include

void main ()
{
clrscr ();
printf ("\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n");
printf ("\t\t\t --------------------------- \n\n");

printf ("\t\t\t | IGCT, Info Computers, INDIA | \n\n");
printf ("\t\t\t --------------------------- ");

getch ();

}

Hits!!!
