Arrays in C

Arrays in C programming starts with memory addresses. Yes the compiler handles arrays as memory addresses.

  • Similar elements group together with a single name is called array
  • the indexing always starts with 0 and ends at n-1 (if the size of the array is n)
  • Array elements stores in consecutive memory location.

The array elements usually stores in consecutive memory location. For example,

int a[10];  //Array with size 10

the above example is an integer array with size 10 or this array can hold 10 variables.

The elements starts from a[0], a[1], a[2]…..a[9], so totally there are 10 elements.

Array elements values memory address location
a[0] 32 600AH  (This address is called as the base address)
a[1] 34 600EH
a[2] 23 6012H
a[3] 35 6016H
a[4] 45 601AH
a[5] 67 601EH
a[6] 56 6022H
a[7] 1 6026H
a[8] 34 602AH
a[9] 25 602EH

The memory addresses shown above are in hexadecimal, that’s why each address suffixed with a letter H. The memory addresses in each machine will be different.

The base address is the address where the first element of the array is stored. Usually it is represented as &a[0] or simply a.

The entire array is represented as an address by specifying the base address alone to various other elements of C programming like passing array to functions involves sending the base address only.

For the above table, here is the declaration syntax

int a[10]={32,34,23,35,45,67,56,1,34,25};

or

int a[]={32,34,23,35,45,67,56,1,34,25};

A simple program to get some numbers and print them on the screen

int main()

{

int a[10], j; //declaration of array “a” and its index j

printf(“Enter all the 10 numbers”);

for(j=0;j<10;j++) //get the numbers using a for loop which executes for 10 times (0 to 9)

{

scanf(“%d”, &a[j]);

}

for(j=0;j<10;j++) //print the numbers using a for loop which executes for 10 times (0 to 9)

{

printf(“%d”,a[j]);

}

return 0;

}

In the above example, j varies from 0 to 9 which means the loop will execute 10 times for the array a like this

a[j] when j=0 then a[0]

a[j] when j=1 then a[1]

a[j] when j=2 then a[2]…. and so on

like this the input is entered through the keyboard and same for printing the output.

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.

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
