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!

<p><strong>C Syntax</strong></p> <p>The provided syntax in this module is broken down for clear understanding.</p> <p><strong>Example:</strong></p> <pre> #include &lt;stdio.h&gt;int main() {  printf("Fynd Academy!");  return 0;} </pre> <p><strong>Code Explanation:</strong></p> <p>Line 1: #include &lt;stdio.h&gt; is a header file library that aids us to execute input and output functions like printf() function (as seen in line 4). C programs utilize such header files for increased functionality. If you lack understanding of #include &lt;stdio.h&gt;, visualize it as a component that enhances your programming applications.</p> <p>Line 2: This line is left blank. Although C disregards the blank spaces, utilizing it makes the code readable.</p> <p>Line 3: Other always-present component of a C program, like main() function. The code encompassed with its curly brackets {} is executed.</p> <p>Line 4: To output or print a text on the screen, printf() function is used. In this case, it will display "Fynd Academy!".</p> <p>Ending every C statement with a semicolon is crucial;</p> <p>Furthermore, the body of int main() could also be interpreted as:</p> <pre> int main(){printf("Fynd Academy!");return 0;} </pre> <p>Lines easy readability is usually enhanced by multiple lines even though spaces are discarded by the compiler.</p> <p>Line 5: The main() function concludes with return 0.</p> <p>Line 6: Don't overlook the addition of the closing curly bracket '}' to indicate the termination of the main function.</p> <p><strong>C Exercises</strong></p> <p><strong>Test Your Understanding:</strong></p> <p>Complete the missing components of the code to display "Fynd Academy!":</p> <pre> int () { ("Fynd Academy!"); return 0; } </pre> <p>Pathfinder<br>Enhance your learning journey - register for free!</p>
