Structures in C Programming

  1. Structure in C groups different data type under a common name
  2. struct is a keyword to declare a structure
  3. The size of the structure depends on the size of the different data types
  4. Structure declaration always ends with a semicolon

Example:

struct employee

{

char name[50];

int empid;

float salary;

};

The total size occupied by the above structure is 50 + 2 + 4 = 56 bytes (on TC compiler) and 50 + 4 + 4= 58 (on other compilers like GCC, etc). Again the size depends on the compiler.

GCC compiler always increase the size of structure which is divisible by 4 for faster code generation, so the above structure takes 60 bytes of memory

  1. Declaring a structure does not consume any memory, only when the structure object is created memory occupies
  2. Variables initialization will not be done during the structure declaration

The above syntax declaration does not consume memory, but the following do

int main()

{

struct employee e1;

}

Now e1 consumes memory of 60 bytes.

Simple Structure to get some details and print them to the screen

// GCC Compiler under windows 64bit

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

/*  structures are declared outside any functions,
so that all the functions in the program can have access to it
*/
struct employee
{
       char name[50];
       int empid;
       float salary;
};

int main()
{
    struct employee e1;
    printf("enter the name, id and salary");
    scanf("%s %d %f",e1.name, &e1.empid, &e1.salary); 

    printf("The details entered are \n");
    printf("%s %d %f",e1.name, e1.empid, e1.salary);
    getch();
    return 0;
}

In the above program name, empid and salary are part of employee, so it should be associated with the member of structure, that’s why e1.name, e1.empid and e1.salary.

 

Array of Structures

//the following program gets the inputs of 3 employees like name, id and salary and compute the total salary taken by all the employees

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

/*  structures are declared outside any functions,
so that all the functions in the program can have access to it
*/
struct employee
{
       char name[50];
       int empid;
       float salary;
};

int main()
{
    struct employee e[3];
    int i;
    float sum=0;
    printf("enter the name, id and salary");
    for(i=0;i<3;i++)
    {
    scanf("%s %d %f",e[i].name, &e[i].empid, &e[i].salary);
    sum=sum+e[i].salary;
    }
   
   
    printf("The details entered are \n");
    for(i=0;i<3;i++)
    printf("%s %d %f",e[i].name, e[i].empid, e[i].salary);
    printf("Total Salary of all 3 employees is %f",sum);
    getch();
    return 0;
}

Arrays within Structures

//The following program gets the 2 student inputs like 3 subject marks and compute the total of all three subject marks

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

/*  structures are declared outside any functions,
so that all the functions in the program can have access to it
*/
struct student
{
       int subjects[3];
       float total;
};

int main()
{
    struct student s[2];
    int i,j;

    printf("enter the 3 subject marks");
    for(i=0;i<2;i++)
    {
    s[i].total=0;
    for(j=0;j<3;j++)
    {
    scanf("%d",&s[i].subjects[j]);
    s[i].total += s[i].subjects[j];
    }
    printf("The total marks scored by student%d is %f",i+1,s[i].total);
    }
   
    getch();
    return 0;

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
