Overview

The course “Art of C Programming” , deals with the fundamental concepts and terminology of computer programming. We provide you with an easy step-by-step guidance to systematically learn programming in C. This course starts with a proper introduction to the programming methodology and algorithm design. This will enable students to develop the skill to logically solve the assignments using C languages.   Overall Objectives: • To develop a strong foundation for the fundamental principles of Problem Solving using computers • To learn the concept of programming • To study C Programming language • To equip the students to write programs for solving simple computing problems using C language as a tool. Expected Learning Outcomes: At the end of the course student will be able to: • Explain the fundamental process of problem solving using computers • Design algorithmic solutions for simple computing problems • Write reliable C programs for given algorithms. • Design, implement, test and debug programs that use different data types, such as simple variables, strings, arrays, pointers and structures • Write C programs for simple applications using files

WEEK 03
MANIPULATING DATA OPERATORS AND EXPRESSIONS
Expressions and operators - Binary arithmetical operators, unary arithmetical operators, assignment operators, relational and logical operators, conditional operators - Hierarchy or the order in which operators work when many of them are in use simultaneously. Library functions and their uses   INPUT AND OUTPUT IN C PART –1 Standard input and output library - C input functions like getchar, gets, getch, scanf, etc - The header file ‘stdio.h’. Week 04: INPUT AND OUTPUT IN C PART –2 Standard input and output library (STDIO) - Console input/output library (CONIO) - The function printf – Function ‘puts’ - sprintf and sscanf functions - The conio library functions such as clreol, clrscr, delline, gettext, gotoxy, textbackground, textcolor etc   WEEK-04
