Passing entire structure to a function

  1. A function can accept a structure as a parameter and even it returns a parameter too.
  2. Either the individual structure elements can be passed or the entire structure can be passed.

Here is the example, for passing the entire structure to a function

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

//Structure declaration

struct student
{
char name[10];
int no;
};

//Function prototypes

void read(struct student);
struct student display(struct student); //function which takes the entire structure as a parameter and it returns a structure also

int main()
{
    struct student s1,s;
     printf("Enter the details");
    scanf("%s %d",s1.name,&s1.no);
    s=display(s1);  //function call
printf("Name is %s and number is %d",s.name,s.no);
    getch();
}

//Function definition

struct student display(struct student s)
{
return s;
}

Nested Structures

A structure can be declared within another structure.

Example include: for a student structure maintaining the date of birth is tougher within the structure,

to avoid the complexity, dateofbirth can be a separate structure as defined below

struct dateofbirth
{
int date;
int month;
int year;
};

struct student
{
char name[50];
int no;
struct dateofbirth dob;
};

so the structure can be accessed using the following:

s.dob.date, s.dob.month, s.dob.year, and s.name, s.no

Example of Nested Structures

 

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

//declare the structure dateofbirth which holds date,month and year

struct dateofbirth
{
int date;
int month;
int year;
};

//declare another structure student which also includes dateofbirth as a datatype

struct student
{
char name[50];
int no;
struct dateofbirth dob; //from another structure
};

int main()
{
struct student s;
printf("Enter the name number and date of birth (dd/mm/yyyy)");
scanf("%s %d %d/%d/%d",s.name,&s.no,&s.dob.date,&s.dob.month,&s.dob.year);
printf("%s %d %d/%d/%d",s.name,s.no,s.dob.date,s.dob.month,s.dob.year);
getch();
return 0;
}

It is always nice to include nested structures in applications as good readability is provided

for Example: building.concrete.cement.quality

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

Installing TexLive 2019 in Ubuntu 18.04

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…
