Introduction to C Programming

Features of C Programming

  • C is a small language having lesser number of keywords than Java or pascal.
  • C is a native language of Unix, Linux. Not only that many of the windows packages, database programs, graphics libraries are written in C program
  • C is portable – it provides standard set of libraries that work on the same way with all machines
  • C is modular, as it supports functions to divide the program in to sub program
  • C is efficient on most machines, because certain constructs are machine dependant.

Structure of a C program

  • Comments
    • the comments are usually ignored by the compiler
    • so this part informs about the author of the program
    • what is the usefulness of this program
    • updation or creation of the program
    • Example: //  - Single line comment
    • /* ----- multi line comments    ….*/
  • Preprocessor Directives
    • before the compiler runs, the preprocessing takes place.
    • the preprocessors are prefix with a symbol #
    • Examples: #include, #define, #ifdef, #pragma, etc.
  • Function prototypes
    • This is to inform the compiler that the following functions are defined in this program.
    • it specifies the name of the function, arguments or parameters and return type and it ends with a semicolon
    • Ex: int sum(int,int);
  • Global Variables
    • Global variables which are declared above all the functions
    • As the name says, they are available to all the functions of that program
    • They are usually stored in the RAM
  • Main Function
    • main is the function which is main to the entire program
    • Every C program should have a main function
    • syntax: int main() { }
    • Earlier, the main program will return nothing, ie void, but now the compilers are instructing us to provide a return type for the main() function
  • User defined functions
    • After the main() function, the user defined functions are defined, as per the function prototype declared in the program
    • The function can be defined above the main function also, in that case there is not need for function prototype
    • Syntax:

int sum(int a, int b)

{

int f;

f=a+b;

return f;

}

Installing TexLive 2019 in Ubuntu 18.04

Installation of TexLive 2019 in Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)
TeX (Tech)

Installation of TexLive 2019

Please watch the video for full installation



I used .iso file to download, the Total size is 3.3GB for Linux,

and i used the torrent file to download, it took me just 20 min to download the entire .iso file

Extract the .iso file to a folder and open a terminal

$] sudo ./install-tl
(it goes into a terminal mode, which is faster compared to the GUI Mode)

$] sudo ./install-tl -gui
after the installation, set the PATH, MANPATH and INFOPATH as suggested by LATEX

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2019/bin/x86_64-linux
export MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/man
export INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/info

put these lines in to the /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc

$] gedit /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
We have installed TexLive 2019 and texstudio.

To install texstudio

$] sudo apt install texstudio
The look and feel of TexStudio looks like this image.


texlive, it install everyt…

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only.The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/MakefileNew set of files to be createdCreate a new directory newcall/ inside the path “/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call
testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S and add the following line at the end
