Lesson 3: Using Loops In C programming

Loops are used to repeat a block of code. Being able to have your program repeatedly execute a block of code is one of the most basic but useful tasks in programming -- many programs or websites that produce extremely complex output (such as a message board) are really only executing a single task many times. (They may be executing a small number of tasks, but in principle, to produce a list of messages only requires repeating the operation of reading in some data and displaying it.) Now, think about what this means: a loop lets you write a very simple statement to produce a significantly greater result simply by repetition.

One caveat: before going further, you should understand the concept of C's true and false, because it will be necessary when working with loops (the conditions are the same as with if statements). This concept is covered in the Previous Tutorial. There are three types of loops: for, while, and do..while. Each of them has their specific uses. They are all outlined below. 

All the above loops are explained with syntax and examples

share your thoughts about us by commenting ..

Break and Continue Kyewords (Importance and How to use)

Two keywords that are very important to looping are break and continue.
The break command will exit the most immediately surrounding loop regardless of what the conditions of the loop are. Break is useful if we want to exit a loop under special circumstances. For example, let's say the program we're working on is a two-person checkers game. The basic structure of the program might look like this:

while (true) 

This will make the game alternate between having player 1 and player 2 take turns. The only problem with this logic is that there's no way to exit the game; the loop will run forever! Let's try something like this instead:

    if (someone_has_won() || someone_wants_to_quit() == TRUE)
    if (someone_has_won() || someone_wants_to_quit() == TRUE)

This code accomplishes what we want--the primary loop of the game will continue under normal circumstances, but under a special condition (winning or exiting) the flow will stop and our program will do something else.

Continue is another keyword that controls the flow of loops. If you are executing a loop and hit a continue statement, the loop will stop its current iteration, update itself (in the case of for loops) and begin to execute again from the top. Essentially, the continue statement is saying "this iteration of the loop is done, let's continue with the loop without executing whatever code comes after me." Let's say we're implementing a game of Monopoly. Like above, we want to use a loop to control whose turn it is, but controlling turns is a bit more complicated in Monopoly than in checkers. The basic structure of our code might then look something like this:

for (player = 1; someone_has_won == FALSE; player++)
        if (player > total_number_of_players)
        {player = 1;}
        if (is_bankrupt(player))

This way, if one player can't take her turn, the game doesn't stop for everybody; we just skip her and keep going with the next player's turn.

Do-While Loop inc C Programming (syntax and Example)

DO..WHILE - DO..WHILE loops are useful for things that want to loop at least once.

The structure is
 } while ( condition );

Notice that the condition is tested at the end of the block instead of the beginning, so the block will be executed at least once. If the condition is true, we jump back to the beginning of the block and execute it again. A do..while loop is almost the same as a while loop except that the loop body is guaranteed to execute at least once. A while loop says "Loop while the condition is true, and execute this block of code", a do..while loop says "Execute this block of code, and then continue to loop while the condition is true".

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
  int x;

  x = 0;
    /* "Hello, world!" is printed at least one time
      even though the condition is false */
      printf( "Hello, world!\n" );
  } while ( x != 0 );
Keep in mind that you must include a trailing semi-colon after the while in the above example. A common error is to forget that a do..while loop must be terminated with a semicolon (the other loops should not be terminated with a semicolon, adding to the confusion). Notice that this loop will execute once, because it automatically executes before checking the condition. 

Using For Loop in C Programming Syntax and Simple Program

FOR - for loops are the most useful type. The syntax for a for loop is

for ( variable initialization; condition; variable update ) 
  Code to execute while the condition is true
The variable initialization allows you to either declare a variable and give it a value or give a value to an already existing variable. Second, the condition tells the program that while the conditional expression is true the loop should continue to repeat itself. The variable update section is the easiest way for a for loop to handle changing of the variable. It is possible to do things like x++, x = x + 10, or even x = random ( 5 ), and if you really wanted to, you could call other functions that do nothing to the variable but still have a useful effect on the code. Notice that a semicolon separates each of these sections, that is important. Also note that every single one of the sections may be empty, though the semicolons still have to be there. If the condition is empty, it is evaluated as true and the loop will repeat until something else stops it. 

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
    int x;
    /* The loop goes while x < 10, and x increases by one every loop*/
    for ( x = 0; x < 10; x++ ) 
        /* Keep in mind that the loop condition checks 
           the conditional statement before it loops again.
           consequently, when x equals 10 the loop breaks.
           x is updated before the condition is checked. */   
        printf( "%d\n", x );
This program is a very simple example of a for loop. x is set to zero, while x is less than 10 it calls printf to display the value of the variable x, and it adds 1 to x until the condition is met. Keep in mind also that the variable is incremented after the code in the loop is run for the first time. 

Different characteristics of Capability Maturity Model (CMM)

Capability maturity model or CMM as it is often abbreviated. It is a development model developed after a prolonged study of the data collected from various organizations from all over the world.

Characteristics of Capability Maturity Model
1.The development of this model was funded by the USDD (United States department of defence).

2.The capability maturity model became the foundation for the development of software engineering institute or SEI as it is popularly known as.

3.The term “maturity” emphasises process optimization and level of formality.

4.Processes are optimized from ad-hoc practices to steps that have been formally defined.

5.Nowadays this model is being used effectively for management of result metrics.

6.Capability maturity model has proved to be great help in active optimization of the processes.

7.This model allows improvement in the development processes of an organization.

8.It is an effective and good approach towards improvement of any organization’s development processes.

9.This model is securely based upon the frame work of process maturity which was developed in 1989.

10.Initially it was used for objective assessment of the processes carried out by the contractors of the government to keep a track on the project.

11.CMM is not only used in the field of software engineering but, it is also applied to organizational processes of a business.

12.It is used in other fields like:
- Software development
- System engineering
- Software maintenance
- Project management
- System acquisition
- Risk management
- Information technology
- Human capital management and
- Services

Where is Capability Maturity Model used?

Capability maturity model is being extensively used in various organizations like in commerce, government offices, software development organizations and industry.

What was the need for Capability Maturity Model?
- In the 20th century the use of computers was wide spread.

- Computerized processes were thought to be less costly, effective and flexible way to carry out tasks.

- As more and more organizations started adopting computerized processing systems, the demand for software development eventually rose.

- As a result CMM was developed, of course with lots of failures.

- The computers were a new technology at that time and so there was a lot of pressure on developers to deliver quality products within a stipulated period of time.

- The US military was in havoc that because all their projects were running out of budget and time.

- So in order to know the reason behind all this, they funded the study at SEI. Active study started at SEI.

- It was watts Humphrey who actually came up with the actual idea of CMM.

- He based his approach on the evolution of software development practices.

- He concentrated on all the processes as one instead of concentrating on just one software development process.

- Since then the CMM has become popular among various organizations and is used as a powerful tool for improving overall performance of the business.

Though CMM proved to be a very effective tool for business but many times it caused problems in software development.

- CMM didn’t allow use of multiple software development practices. It was superseded by CMMI.

- These days still the capability maturity model is being used as the model with the capability of handling general processes when it comes to public domain.

Some Important Facts About CMM
1.CMM is still maintaining its position as a model of maturity of process.

2.CMM provides a place to start the development.

3.It uses a common language and the development is based upon a shared vision.

4.It effectively develops a frame work for actions according to their priority.

5.For an organization it defines the ways for improvement.

6.It is used an aid for better and effective understanding.

CMM has 5 aspects:
- Maturity level
- Key process area
- Goal
- Features
- Practices.

While Loop in C Programming (Syntax and Example)

WHILE - WHILE loops are very simple.
The basic structure is

while ( condition ) 
Code to execute while the condition is true 

The true represents a boolean expression which could be x == 1 or while ( x != 7 ) (x does not equal 7). It can be any combination of boolean statements that are legal. Even, (while x ==5 || v == 7) which says execute the code while x equals five or while v equals 7. Notice that a while loop is like a stripped-down version of a for loop-- it has no initialization or update section. However, an empty condition is not legal for a while loop as it is with a for loop.

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
  int x = 0;  /* Don't forget to declare variables */
  while ( x < 10 ) 
  { /* While x is less than 10 */
      printf( "%d\n", x );
      x++;             /* Update x so the condition can be met eventually */
This was another simple example, but it is longer than the above FOR loop. The easiest way to think of the loop is that when it reaches the brace at the end it jumps back up to the beginning of the loop, which checks the condition again and decides whether to repeat the block another time, or stop and move to the next statement after the block. 

Basic Syntax of IF - ELSE Statement in C , C++ with example

Basic If Syntax

The structure of an if statement is as follows:
if ( statement is TRUE )
    Execute this line of code
Here is a simple example that shows the syntax:
if ( 5 < 10 )
    printf( "Five is now less than ten, that's a big surprise" );

Here, we're just evaluating the statement, "is five less than ten", to see if it is true or not; with any luck, it's not! If you want, you can write your own full program including stdio.h and put this in the main function and run it to test.

To have more than one statement execute after an if statement that evaluates to true, use braces, like we did with the body of the main function. Anything inside braces is called a compound statement, or a block. When using if statements, the code that depends on the if statement is called the "body" of the if statement.

For example:
if ( TRUE ) {
  /* between the braces is the body of the if statement */
  Execute all statements inside the body
I recommend always putting braces following if statements. If you do this, you never have to remember to put them in when you want more than one statement to be executed, and you make the body of the if statement more visually clear.


Sometimes when the condition in an if statement evaluates to false, it would be nice to execute some code instead of the code executed when the statement evaluates to true. The "else" statement effectively says that whatever code after it (whether a single line or code between brackets) is executed if the if statement is FALSE.

It can look like this:
if ( TRUE ) {
  /* Execute these statements if TRUE */
else {
  /* Execute these statements if FALSE */

Else if

Another use of else is when there are multiple conditional statements that may all evaluate to true, yet you want only one if statement's body to execute. You can use an "else if" statement following an if statement and its body; that way, if the first statement is true, the "else if" will be ignored, but if the if statement is false, it will then check the condition for the else if statement. If the if statement was true the else statement will not be checked. It is possible to use numerous else if statements to ensure that only one block of code is executed.

Let's look at a simple program for you to try out on your own.
#include <stdio.h> 

int main()                            /* Most important part of the program!
    int age;                          /* Need a variable... */
    printf( "Please enter your age" );  /* Asks for age */
    scanf( "%d", &age );                 /* The input is put in age */
    if ( age < 100 ) {                  /* If the age is less than 100 */
     printf ("You are pretty young!\n" ); /* Just to show you it works... */
  else if ( age == 100 ) {            /* I use else just to show an example */ 
     printf( "You are old\n" );       
  else {
    printf( "You are really old\n" );     /* Executed if no other statement is
  return 0;

Lesson 2: Using If statements in C, C++

Basic Syntax of IF - ELSE Statement in C , C++ with example 

The ability to control the flow of your program, letting it make decisions on what code to execute, is valuable to the programmer. The if statement allows you to control if a program enters a section of code or not based on whether a given condition is true or false. One of the important functions of the if statement is that it allows the program to select an action based upon the user's input. For example, by using an if statement to check a user-entered password, your program can decide whether a user is allowed access to the program.

Without a conditional statement such as the if statement, programs would run almost the exact same way every time, always following the same sequence of function calls. If statements allow the flow of the program to be changed, which leads to more interesting code.

Before discussing the actual structure of the if statement, let us examine the meaning of TRUE and FALSE in computer terminology. A true statement is one that evaluates to a nonzero number. A false statement evaluates to zero. When you perform comparison with the relational operators, the operator will return 1 if the comparison is true, or 0 if the comparison is false. For example, the check 0 == 2 evaluates to 0. The check 2 == 2 evaluates to a 1. If this confuses you, try to use a printf statement to output the result of those various comparisons (for example printf ( "%d", 2 == 1 );)

When programming, the aim of the program will often require the checking of one value stored by a variable against another value to determine whether one is larger, smaller, or equal to the other.

There are a number of operators that allow these checks.

Here are the relational operators, as they are known, along with examples:
>     greater than              5 > 4 is TRUE
<     less than                 4 < 5 is TRUE
>=    greater than or equal     4 >= 4 is TRUE
<=    less than or equal        3 <= 4 is TRUE
==    equal to                  5 == 5 is TRUE
!=    not equal to              5 != 4 is TRUE
It is highly probable that you have seen these before, probably with slightly different symbols. They should not present any hindrance to understanding. Now that you understand TRUE and FALSE well as the comparison operators, let us look at the actual structure of if statements.

What is the difference between scripted testing and exploratory testing?

Though exploratory testing and scripted are considered being a part of each other, there is a lot of difference between the two.

The scripted testing is performed by a set of test scripts which can be defined as a set of instructions that are to be performed on the software system or application under the test to test a particular functionality as required.

 There are following ways of executing test scripts:

1. Automated testing:
- It can be easily repeated and is faster than manual testing.
- It is very useful when it is required to run the same tests over and over again.
- It is performed as a part of regression testing.
- Automated tests are poorly written and they may break during the execution.
- They only test what has been programmed into them.
- They only ensure that old bugs do not reappear.
- Manual testing and automated testing should be mixed together and used for exploratory testing.

2. Manual testing:
- This is the oldest and the most rigorous forms of testing.
- The test cases are reviewed by the whole testing team before using them.
- The test cases are either created at the basic functionality level or at the scenario level.

3. Short programs or test scripts written in a programming language (C#, C++, expect, TCL, java, Perl, PHP, python, power shell) or a special automated functional GUI test tool (like Borland silk test, HP quick professional test, rational robot etc) can be used to test functionality of a software system or application.

4. Short programs that have been extensively parameterized or data driven testing.

5. Table driven testing or keyword driven testing i.e., using reusable tests created in a table.

- Scripted testing is considered to be as a waste of resources by most of the testers.

- According to them the scripted manual testing inhibits the mind of the tester to use their creativity.

- Also, this testing requires heavy documentation as well as considerable amount of resources to create them.

- They often get out dated since the changes in the system are inevitable.

- Though being so criticized manual scripted testing is used by many organizations.

- The test cases are made repeatable and easy enough for a tester to perform testing with minimum supervision.

- Manual scripted testing is used in contracts where contractual agreement states that written requirements and specifications of the software must be met.

- Scripted test cases are useful where the tests are used as benchmark and have to be executed in the same way, every time.

- In contrast to scripted testing, exploratory testing is a usual approach to software testing and can be defined as a test designing, test execution and simultaneously learning process.

- Exploratory testing is a kind of software testing that is emphasized and focused up on the responsibility and the personal freedom of the software tester.

- Exploratory testing is a kind of software testing that is emphasized and focused up to optimize the quality and effectiveness of his /her work continually by taking in to consideration mutually supportive activities like test designing, test related learning, test result interpretation and test execution.

- The activities run in parallel to each other.

- Exploratory testing basically heeds to exploiting the creativity of the tester or the programmer.

- During the testing of the software, the tester comes across various new things to learn together with experiencing them.

- Exploratory testing can be thought of as a black box testing methodology or technique instead of thinking of it as an approach to testing that can be used for any type of testing methodology and also at any phase of development of the software system or application.

What kind of Applications You Can Write with C#

The .NET Framework has no restrictions on the types of applications that are possible, as discussed
earlier. C# uses the framework and therefore has no restrictions on possible applications. However,
here are a few of the more common application types:

Windows applications. Applications, such as Microsoft Office, that have a familiar Windows
look and feel about them. This is made simple by using the Windows Forms module of the
.NET Framework, which is a library of controls (such as buttons, toolbars, menus, and so on)
that you can use to build a Windows user interface (UI). Alternatively, you can use Windows
Presentation Foundation (WPF) to build Windows applications, which gives you much greater
flexibility and power.

Web applications. Web pages such as those that might be viewed through any Web browser.
The .NET Framework includes a powerful system for generating Web content dynamically,
enabling personalization, security, and much more. This system is called ASP.NET (Active
Server Pages .NET), and you can use C# to create ASP.NET applications using Web Forms.
You can also write applications that run inside the browser with Silverlight.

Web services. An exciting way to create versatile distributed applications. Using Web services
you can exchange virtually any data over the Internet, using the same simple syntax
regardless of the language used to create a Web service or the system on which it resides. For
more advanced capabilities, you can also create Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)

Any of these types may also require some form of database access, which can be achieved using the
ADO.NET (Active Data Objects .NET) section of the .NET Framework, through the ADO.NET Entity
Framework, or through the LINQ (Language Integrated Query) capabilities of C#. Many other
resources can be drawn on, such as tools for creating networking components, outputting graphics,
performing complex mathematical tasks, and so on.

.net(dotNet) Framework Platform Architecture

.Net Framework Platform Architecture :
C# programs run on the .NET Framework, an integral component of Windows that includes a virtual execution system called the common language runtime (CLR) and a unified set of class libraries. The CLR is the commercial implementation by Microsoft of the common language infrastructure (CLI), an international standard that is the basis for creating execution and development environments in which languages and libraries work together seamlessly.

Source code written in C# is compiled into an intermediate language (IL) that conforms to the CLI specification. The IL code and resources, such as bitmaps and strings, are stored on disk in an executable file called an assembly, typically with an extension of .exe or .dll. An assembly contains a manifest that provides information about the assembly's types, version, culture, and security requirements.
When the C# program is executed, the assembly is loaded into the CLR, which might take various actions based on the information in the manifest. Then, if the security requirements are met, the CLR performs just in time (JIT) compilation to convert the IL code to native machine instructions. The CLR also provides other services related to automatic garbage collection, exception handling, and resource management. Code that is executed by the CLR is sometimes referred to as "managed code," in contrast to "unmanaged code" which is compiled into native machine language that targets a specific system. The following diagram illustrates the compile-time and run-time relationships of C# source code files, the .NET Framework class libraries, assemblies, and the CLR.
From C# source code to machine execution Language interoperability is a key feature of the .NET Framework. Because the IL code produced by the C# compiler conforms to the Common Type Specification (CTS), IL code generated from C# can interact with code that was generated from the .NET versions of Visual Basic, Visual C++, or any of more than 20 other CTS-compliant languages. A single assembly may contain multiple modules written in different .NET languages, and the types can reference each other just as if they were written in the same language.
In addition to the run time services, the .NET Framework also includes an extensive library of over 4000 classes organized into namespaces that provide a wide variety of useful functionality for everything from file input and output to string manipulation to XML parsing, to Windows Forms controls. The typical C# application uses the .NET Framework class library extensively to handle common "plumbing" chores.

 For more information about the .NET Framework, see Overview of the .NET Framework.

Introduction to the C# Language

C# is an elegant and type-safe object-oriented language that enables developers to build a variety of secure and robust applications that run on the .NET Framework. You can use C# to create traditional Windows client applications, XML Web services, distributed components, client-server applications, database applications, and much, much more. Visual C# 2010 provides an advanced code editor, convenient user interface designers, integrated debugger, and many other tools to make it easier to develop applications based on version 4.0 of the C# language and version 4.0 of the .NET Framework.

C# Language:

         C# syntax is highly expressive, yet it is also simple and easy to learn. The curly-brace syntax of C# will be instantly recognizable to anyone familiar with C, C++ or Java. Developers who know any of these languages are typically able to begin to work productively in C# within a very short time. C# syntax simplifies many of the complexities of C++ and provides powerful features such as nullable value types, enumerations, delegates, lambda expressions and direct memory access, which are not found in Java. C# supports generic methods and types, which provide increased type safety and performance, and iterators, which enable implementers of collection classes to define custom iteration behaviors that are simple to use by client code. Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) expressions make the strongly-typed query a first-class language construct.
As an object-oriented language, C# supports the concepts of encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. All variables and methods, including the Main method, the application's entry point, are encapsulated within class definitions. A class may inherit directly from one parent class, but it may implement any number of interfaces. Methods that override virtual methods in a parent class require the override keyword as a way to avoid accidental redefinition. In C#, a struct is like a lightweight class; it is a stack-allocated type that can implement interfaces but does not support inheritance.
In addition to these basic object-oriented principles, C# makes it easy to develop software components through several innovative language constructs, including the following:
  • Encapsulated method signatures called delegates, which enable type-safe event notifications.
  • Properties, which serve as accessors for private member variables.
  • Attributes, which provide declarative metadata about types at run time.
  • Inline XML documentation comments.
  • Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) which provides built-in query capabilities across a variety of data sources.
If you have to interact with other Windows software such as COM objects or native Win32 DLLs, you can do this in C# through a process called "Interop." Interop enables C# programs to do almost anything that a native C++ application can do. C# even supports pointers and the concept of "unsafe" code for those cases in which direct memory access is absolutely critical.
The C# build process is simple compared to C and C++ and more flexible than in Java. There are no separate header files, and no requirement that methods and types be declared in a particular order. A C# source file may define any number of classes, structs, interfaces, and events.

The following are additional C# resources:

How to write Resume ? Tips

Words are the name of the game when it comes to resumes, and job seekers need to be strategic in their choice of them. Many of us often use keywords on our resumes, but how do you know which words to choose and which ones to leave out? In answer to those questions, we’ve compiled a brief list of some of the most overused words on resumes. Avoid them whenever possible and choose a more creative alternatives. After knowing which words to avoid, you’ll be ready to construct an eye-catching resume.

1. Accomplished. Yes, we all know every job seeker is accomplished, otherwise you would have been fired from every job you’d ever had if you never accomplished anything. Instead try: peak performer.

2. Results-Driven. Everyone’s professional resume starts out with “Results-driven (insert your job title here)”. The only problem is, in the job-search game you don’t want to sound like everyone else; you want to stand out from the crowd. Instead try: performance-driven.

3. Successful. This is another overused word. We all want to communicate how successful we’ve been so a new employer will think highly of us, but consider some alternative wording versus coming out and saying “hey there, I’m a success.” Instead try: best in class, award-winning, or top performer.

4. Skillful or Skilled. These are so boring; I hate to see resumes with these words on them. I’m sure you can come up with something much more creative for your resume. If you can’t think of anything, try my recommendations, or if you don’t like them use a thesaurus. Instead try: talented, sharp, or resourceful.

5. Problem-Solver. Isn’t this a given? We’re ALL problem solvers; if you’re human, you’re a problem solver. Does it really need to be said on your resume? I think not. Instead try: troubleshooter, forward-thinking, or visionary leader.

6. And last but not least Dedicated and Dependable. Again I have to say boring, boring, boring. Spice up your resume with something creative. Instead try: high potential, quality-driven, or dynamic.

As a job seeker, what are some other words that you think are overused on resumes these days?

Hashing line segments C Program Code

Below the information to understand the program completely.

R = a rectangular region with bottom-left corner at (0,0) and top-right corner at (X,Y), X and Y being user-specified.
n = Number of line segments whose endpoints have integer coordinates and lie in R.
Task:  Use hashing to store the line segments one by one in a suitable data structure T. While generating, the two endpoints of each segment should be randomly selected and a newly generated segment should be inserted in T only if it is not already there in T.


typedef struct nodetype
int x1;
int x2;
int y1;
int y2;
struct nodetype *next;

node* lastnode(node *);
int findduplicate(node **,int,int,int,int,int);
void display(node **,int);

int X,Y,x1,y1,x2,y2,n,i=0,j,c,exist,s=1;
node  **A=NULL,*ptr=NULL,*last=NULL;


printf(“\n Enter the Second co-orinates of the Rectangle as integer value (X,Y) respectively :”);
printf(“\n Enter the no. of segments must be less than or equals to (Y+1)^2*(Y+1)^2-2(X+1)*(Y+1) :\n”);

A=(node **)malloc(sizeof(node *)*n);

exist = findduplicate(A,n,x1,x2,y1,y2);
ptr=(node *)malloc(sizeof(node));



printf(“\n\nThe cordinates of all segments are:\n “);

int findduplicate(node **A,int n,int x1,int x2,int y1,int y2)
int j;
node *head;
if (A[j] == NULL)
return 1;
return 0;

node* lastnode(node *head)
return head;

void display(node **A,int n)
node *head=NULL;
int k;
printf(“\n no segments created\n”);

Tips For GATE 2012

Gate 2012 exam will be held in February  second Sunday. So all the GATE aspirants  now should be serious about study . Every one has first priority to go a good IIT (Indian Institute of Technology ) for M Tech. Many students across the India and aboard the India preparing seriously and working hard to crack IIT. Many of iit aspirants taking coaching at good coaching centers in India. Now the time to achieve your aim. As a IITian I am suggesting you some tips which will help you achieve your goal.

Before 15 days of exam:

Make a strict schedule to complete your revision study. Don’t read any new topic if you face difficulties in understanding because gate is fully objective and all four options in a question will appear nearly same but there are little difference among them . If you don’t have deep knowledge in any topic then you cant understand the questions or options correctly.It is not subjective questions where if you answer the question and some part is correct then you will get some marks by step marking process. Gate answers sheets will check by machine and if option is wrong then you will get negative mark.  Practice all formulas very well . Make own shortcut methods to solve problems but be sure your shortcut method always should be give correct results otherwise you should not apply this. Don’t be negative , because it will reduce your effort. Faith on God and your labor . Also with out a plan making labor is a valueless work. So proper plan yourself to how can you get good score in GATE. Make a strong determination that you can achieve this any how. Don’t discuss out of syllabus or any personal topic with friends except your gate topic because it will reduce your memory power, brain analysis power and may affect your determination towards gate.

Just before one day of the Examination :

Only look all the difficulties topics and formulas very well. At night 9.00 pm stop reading and go to sleep with drinking sufficient water because sufficient sleep will increase your brains remembering power and analysis power. Just wake up at early morning at 6.00 am. Don’t read anything ,just think how exam will be going on. Don’t watch movie or don’t read any article or book. Prepare for exam and on the way of going to exam hall don’t read anything from advertisement hording. Don’t argue with any one and feel relax.

On the day of the Examination :

Go to exam hall before 30 minutes . After getting the answer sheet(OMR) start the writing your roll no and name with pencil. Check two times if your information is correct or not. After getting the question paper start reading the all questions for 10 to 15 minutes .Divide your time to all question papers by mark wise before the examination day and reserve 15 minutes for question reading, 15 minutes for complete darkening(otherwise machine can not identify the answer) and 15 minuets for rechecking and remaining 2hrs 15 minutes divide to 60 (because 60 questions).  At the time of reading the question paper on examination hall put a mark on question which you can solve 100% correctly and put a separate mark which questions you don’t know any thing. Try to solve the questions which you can answer with full confidence. Try to solve a question in its limit time. Limit time you already decide on above by dividing the total time with total questions. Don’t leave a question if it already partially solved and can be solve after giving more one or 2 minutes. Solve all the questions which you can answer with full confidence in a priority basis i.e solve all the linked questions first then common data questions then 2 mark questions then 1 mark questions and put a short mark for full solved questions and half solved questions and don’t know questions because it will save your time to identify the questions which you solved or cant be solve or already partially solved. Before 30 minutes of exam over just start to darken the circles in answer sheet. Don’t darken the answer sheet after solve question immediately one by one because it will take more time to darken. Also don’t darken the answers sheet by looking questions serial no. because if you make a single mistake to darken a single questions answer then all answers followed by that will be wrong . After all ,solve any remained questions which you faced difficulties leaved with partially solved. But before 5 minute of exam finish must be darken all answers which you solved. Good luck.

Searching using system calls Program in C Code

Write a C program that takes a file name as a command line parameter and sorts a set of integers stored in the file (use any sorting method). You can assume that the file will always be there in the current directory and that it will always contain a set of integers(maximum no. of integers is 1000). The sorted output is written to the display and the input file is left unchanged. Compile the C file into an executable named “sort1″. Now write a C program that implements a command called “sort” that you will invoke from the shell prompt. The syntax of the command is “sort “. When you type the command, the command opens a new xterm window, and then sorts the integers stored in the file using the program “sort1″. Look up the man pages for xterm, fork and the different variations of exec* calls (such as execv, execve, execlp etc.) to do this assignment.


int main(int argc, char *argv[])

FILE *fp1;
int A[1000],T[1000];
int j,i=0;

/* check that we have a file name specified as a command-line argument */
if (argc<2)
printf(“\nPlease enter filename as argument when running this program.\n”);
printf(“For example: listprog file.txt\n\n”);
return -1;

fp1= fopen(argv[1], “r”);
if (!fp1)
printf(“\nUnable to open file: %s; exiting.\n\n”, argv[1]);
return -2;

for(j=0;(j<1000)&&(feof(fp1)== 0);j++)
if(feof(fp1)== 0)


return 0;

display(int A[],int n)
int i;


sort(int a[],int n)
int i,j,t;
