printf() and scanf() Functions

Printf() is a function to print strings to the display unit and

scanf() is to scan the input through the keyboard

the f in the printf and scanf are called as format. That is, printf() and scanf() will print and scan in some particular format, it is the duty of the developer to provide that formats.

For example

printf(“a=%d, b=%d”, a,b); //This function will print a=10, b=20 if the values of a and b are 10 and 20

scanf(“%f”, &a); //this will accept a float number as the specifier is %f which is for float, See the Ampersand symbol which to tell the compiler to store the variable into the address.

Here is the list of format codes or format specifiers

scanf() format codes

Code Meaning
%c read a single character
%d read a decimal integer
%f read a floating point value
%e read a floating point value (even in exponential format)
%g read a floating point value
%h read a decimal, heaxadecimal or octal integer
%o read an octal integer
%s read a string
%u read an unsigned integer
%x read a hexadecimal integer

h for short integers like %hd

l for long integers like "%ld

L for long double like %Lf

printf() format codes

Code Meaning
%c prints a single character
%d print a decimal integer
%e print a floating point value in exponential form
%f print a float point value
%g print a float point value either in f type or e type depending on the value
%i print a signed decimal integer
%o prints an octal integer
%s prints a string
%u print an unsigned integer
%x print a hexadecimal number

 

Backslash Character constants or Escape Characters

There are some characters inside the double quotes for printf() and scanf() which are escaped by the compiler and hence it will the next character after the escape characters

Character What it will do
\n go to the new line
\t horizontal tab
\a alert bell
\f form feed
\r carriage return
\” will print “
\’ will print ‘
\? will print ?
\\ will print \
\v vertical tab
\b backspace

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/Makefile New set of files to be created Create 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_tab

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
