Begin Your Journey with C

To initiate your learning in C, you require the following:

  • A text editor for crafting C code
  • A compiler like GCC to convert the C code into a machine-understandable language

There are various text editors and compilers to select from. For this tutorial, an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will be used by us.

Setting up the C IDE

An IDE is a software suite that consolidates the basic tools needed to write and test the code. Popular IDEs include Code::Blocks, Eclipse, and Visual Studio which are all free to use and facilitate both the editing and debugging of C code.

Note: Although web-based IDEs can be used, they typically have more limitations compared to their desktop counterparts.

We recommend starting with Code::Blocks. The latest version can be downloaded from here.

Let's Start with C

Create your first C file by following the steps below:

  1. Open Codeblocks
  2. Go to File > New > Empty File
  3. Write the following C code and save the file as myfirstprogram.c:
#include <stdio.h>, int main() { printf("Welcome to Fynd Academy!"); return 0;}

The above code might seem incomprehensible for now, we'll break it down in later chapters. For now, concentrate on running the code.

Executing Your Code

After writing the code, it's time to run it. In Codeblocks, navigate to Build > Build and Run. Your result will look something like this:

Welcome to Fynd Academy!

Great job! You've just written and executed your first C program.

Your C Learning Journey with Fynd Academy

Learning C with Fynd Academy is facilitated by our "Practice it Yourself" tool. It concurrently illustrates the code and the outcome, simplifying every new part you learn:

#include <stdio.h>int main() { printf("Welcome to Fynd Academy!"); return 0;} Welcome to Fynd Academy!

Here's the simplest HTML content based on your requirements: ```html <h1>C Data Types</h1> <p>Data Types: As highlighted in the Variables unit, a variable in C must be a specific data type, and a format specifier should be utilized in the printf() function for its representation.</p> <h3>Example</h3> <pre> // Declare variables int numericalValue = 5; // Integer (whole number) float decimalValue = 5.99; // Floating point number char characterValue = 'D'; // Character // Display variables printf("%d\n", numericalValue); printf("%f\n", decimalValue); printf("%c\n", characterValue); </pre> <p>Basic Data Types</p> <p>The data type determines the size and type of data that the variable can accommodate. In this tutorial, we will concentrate on the fundamental ones.</p> <table> <tr> <th>Data Type</th> <th>Size</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Example</th> </tr> <tr> <td>int</td> <td>2 or 4 bytes</td> <td>Stores whole numbers, without decimals</td> <td>1</td> </tr> <tr> <td>float</td> <td>4 bytes</td> <td>Stores fractional numbers, containing one or more decimals. Sufficient for storing 6-7 decimal digits</td> <td>1.99</td> </tr> <tr> <td>double</td> <td>8 bytes</td> <td>Stores fractional numbers, containing one or more decimals. Adequate for storing 15 decimal digits</td> <td>1.99</td> </tr> <tr> <td>char</td> <td>1 byte</td> <td>Stores a single character/letter/number, or ASCII values</td> <td>'A'</td> </tr> </table> <p>Basic Format Specifiers</p> <p>Every data type has a different format specifier. Here are some examples:</p> <table> <tr> <th>Format Specifier</th> <th>Data Type</th> </tr> <tr> <td>%d or %i</td> <td>int</td> </tr> <tr> <td>%f or %F</td> <td>float</td> </tr> <tr> <td>%lf</td> <td>double</td> </tr> <tr> <td>%c</td> <td>char</td> </tr> <tr> <td>%s</td> <td>Used for text (strings), more on this in a future unit</td> </tr> </table> <p>C Exercises</p> <p>Test Yourself With Exercises</p> <p>Exercise: Assign the suitable data type for the following variables:</p> <pre> numericalValue = 5; decimalValue = 5.99; characterValue = 'D'; </pre> <p>Submit Answer</p> <p>Fynd Academy</p> <p>Track your progress - it's free!</p> ``` Remember, I kept the HTML content simple and straight to the point considering your requirements.
