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 is your text converted into simplified HTML, with all the changes you requested: <code> <h1>C If ... Else</h1> <h2>Conditions and If Statements</h2> <p>C supports the usual logical conditions from mathematics:</p> <ul> <li>Less than: a &lt; b</li> <li>Less than or equal to: a &lt;= b</li> <li>Greater than: a &gt; b</li> <li>Greater than or equal to: a &gt;= b</li> <li>Equal to a == b</li> <li>Not Equal to: a != b</li> </ul> <p>You can use these conditions to activate different actions. C has the following conditional statements:</p> <ul> <li>Use <em>if</em> to define a block of code that will be executed if a certain condition is true.</li> <li>Use <em>else</em> to define a block of code that will be executed if the condition isn't true.</li> <li>Use <em>else if</em> to test a new condition if the primary condition isn't true.</li> <li>Use <em>switch</em> to focus on many alternative blocks of code.</li> </ul> <h2>The If Statement</h2> <p>Use the <em>if</em> statement to define a block of code that will be executed if a condition is true.</p> <h3>Syntax</h3> <code> if (condition) { } </code> <p>Please note that <em>if</em> is in lowercase letters. Using uppercase (If or IF) will result in an error.</p> <p>In the example below, we test if 20 is greater than 18. If this condition is true, a text is displayed:</p> <code> if (20 > 18) {  printf("20 is greater than 18");} </code> <p>We can also test variables:</p> <code> int var1 = 20;int var2 = 18;if (var1 > var2) {  printf("var1 is greater than var2");} </code> <p>Explained example:</p> <p>In the previous example, we utilized two variables, var1 and var2, to determine if var1 is larger than var2 (using the > operator). Given that var1 is 20 and var2 is 18,and we recognize that 20 is greater than 18, so "var1 is greater than var2" will be printed.</p> <h2>C Exercises</h2> <p>Exercise your skills with some Exercises</p> <code> Exercise: Print "Hello World" if var1 is greater than var2. int var1 = 50; int var2 = 10; if (var1 > var2) { printf("Hello World"); } </code> <button>Submit Answer</button> <button>Start the Exercise</button> </code> <p> Fynd Academy </p>
