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!

Certainly, here is the text in simplified HTML form following the requested changes: <h2>C For Loop</h2> <p>A "for loop" is used when you want to iterate through a block of code a particular number of times.</p> <p>The syntax for a for loop in C is:</p> <pre> for (declarative expression; conditional expression; iterative expression) {  // code to be executed } </pre> <p>Here's specifically what happens:</p> <ul> <li>The declarative expression runs once before the execution of the code.</li> <li>The conditional expression defines under what conditions the code will execute.</li> <li>The iterative expression runs every time after the code has been run.</li> </ul> <p>The following code snippet will illustrate this by printing the numbers 0 through 4:</p> <pre> int counter; for (counter = 0; counter < 5; counter++) {  printf("%d \n", counter); } </pre> <h3>Example explained:</h3> <p>The first expression sets a counter to 0, while the second expression makes the loop run until the counter is less than 5. If the condition is satisfied, the loop will restart, or else it will stop. The third expression increments the counter by one each time.</p> <h3>Exercise:</h3> <p>Try creating a for loop to print "Yes" five times:</p><pre> int counter = 0; for (counter = 0; counter < 5; counter++) {  printf("Yes \n"); } </pre> <h3>Fynd Academy</h3> <p>Keep enhancing your coding skills with us!</p>
