Let Us C Fifth Edition Yashavant P Kanetkar Dedicated to baba Who couldn’t be here to see this day About the Author Destiny drew Yashavant Kanetkar towards computers when the IT industry was just making a beginning in India Having completed his education from VJTI Mumbai and IIT Kanpur in Mechanical Engineering he started his training company in Nagpur Yashavant has a passion for writing and is an author of several books in C, C++, VC++, C#, NET, DirectX and COM programming He is a much sought after speaker on various technology subjects and is a regular columnist for Express Computers and Developer 2.0 His current affiliations include being a Director of KICIT, a training company and DCube Software Technologies, a software development company In recognition to his contribution Microsoft awarded him the prestigious “Best NET Technical Contributor” award recently He can be reached at Acknowledgments It has been a journey of almost a decade from the stage the book idea of “Let Us C” was conceived up to the release of this Fifth Edition During this journey I have met so many students, developers, professors, publishers and authors who expressed their opinions about Let Us C They have been the main motivators in my effort to continuously improve this book In particular I am indebted to Manish Jain who had a faith in this book idea, believed in my writing ability, whispered the words of encouragement and made helpful suggestions from time to time The five editions of this book saw several changes and facelifts During this course people like Ajay Joshi, Amol Tambat, Ajay Daga, Nandita Shastri, Mrunal Khandekar and Rahul Bedge helped in writing programs, spotting bugs, drawing figures and preparing index I trust that with their collective acumen all the programs would run correctly in all situations Anup Das, my colleague has a lot of influence on this Fifth Edition He helped my clarify my thoughts and pointing me in the direction of Windows and Linux He sincerely wanted this edition to offer “C, in today’s perspective” I am hopeful that his dream has been realized I thank Seema, my wife, for her friendship and for her contributions in everything that I in IT in ways more than she could ever guess Though she is a Gynecologist by profession she has the uncanny ability to come up with suggestions that make me feel “Oh, why didn’t it occur to me” And finally my heartfelt gratitude to the countless students who made me look into every nook and cranny of C I would forever remain indebted to them v Preface to the Fifth Edition It is mid 2004 World has left behind the DOTCOM bust, 9/11 tragedy, the economic downturn, etc and moved on Countless Indians have relentlessly worked for close to two decades to successfully establish “India” as a software brand At times I take secret pleasure in seeing that a book that I have been part of, has contributed in its own little way in shaping so many budding careers that have made the “India” brand acceptable Computing and the way people use C for doing it keeps changing as years go by So overwhelming has been the response to all the previous editions of “Let Us C” that I have now decided that each year I would come up with a new edition of it so that I can keep the readers abreast with the way C is being used at that point in time There are two phases in every C programmer’s life In the first phase he is a learner trying to understand the language elements and their nuances At this stage he wants a simple learning environment that helps him to master the language In my opinion, even today there isn’t any learning environment that can beat Turbo C/C++ for simplicity Hence the first fifteen chapters are written keeping this environment in mind, though a majority of these programs in these chapters would work with any C compiler Armed with the knowledge of language elements the C programmer enters the second phase Here he wishes to use all that he has learnt to create programs that match the ability of programs that he see in today’s world I am pointing towards programs in Windows and Linux world Chapters 16 to 21 are devoted to this I would like to your attention the fact that if you want to program Windows or Linux you need to have a very good grasp over the programming model used by each of these OS Windows messaging architecture and Linux signaling mechanism are the cases in point Once you understand these thoroughly rest is just a vi matter of time Chapters 16 to 21 have been written with this motive In Linux programming the basic hurdle is in choosing the Linux distribution, compiler, editor, shell, libraries, etc To get a headstart you can follow the choices that I found most reasonable and simple They have been mentioned in Chapter 20 and Appendix H Once you are comfortable you can explore other choices In fourth edition of Let Us C there were chapters on ‘Disk Basics’, ‘VDU Basics’, ‘Graphics’, ‘Mouse Programming’, ‘C and Assembly’ Though I used to like these chapters a lot I had to take a decision to drop them since most of them were DOS-centric and would not be so useful in modern-day programming Modern counterparts of all of these have been covered in Chapters 16 to 21 However, if you still need the chapters from previous edition they are available at Also, all the programs present in the book are available in source code form at You are free to download them, improve them, change them, whatever with them If you wish to get solutions for the Exercises in the book they are available in another book titled ‘Let Us C Solutions’ ‘Let Us C’ is as much your book as it is mine So if you feel that I could have done certain job better than what I have, or you have any suggestions about what you would like to see in the next edition, please drop a line to All the best and happy programming! vii Contents Getting Started What is C Getting Started with C The C Character Set Constants, Variables

are organized as zerobased drives That is, drive A is drive number 0, drive B is drive number 1, drive C is drive number 2, etc The hard disk drive can be further partitioned into logical partitions Each drive consists of four logical parts—Boot Sector, File Allocation Table (FAT), Directory and Data space When a file/directory is created on the disk, instead of allocating a sector for it, a group of sectors is allocated This group of sectors is often known as a cluster How many sectors together form one cluster depends upon the capacity of the disk As the capacity goes on increasing, so also does the maximum cluster number Accordingly, we have 12-bit, 16-bit or 32-bit FAT In a 12-bit FAT each entry is of 12 bits Since each entry in FAT represents a cluster number, the maximum cluster number possible in a 12-bit FAT is 212 (4096) Similarly, in case of a 16-bit FAT the maximum cluster number is 216 (65536) Also, for a 32-bit FAT the maximum cluster number is 228 (268435456 Only 28 of the 32 bits are used in this FAT) All FAT systems are not supported by all versions of DOS and Windows For example, the 32-bit FAT system is supported only in Win 95 OSR2 version or later There are differences in the organization of contents of Boot Sector, FAT and Directory in FAT12/FAT16 system on one hand and FAT32 on the other In Chapter 19 Figure 19.6 we saw the breakup of the contents of the boot sector of a 12-bit FAT Given below are the contents of a boot sector of 16-bit FAT and a 32-bit FAT 731 Appendix G: Boot Parameters Description Length Typical Values Jump instruction EB3C90 OEM name MSWIN4.1 Bytes per sector 512 Sectors per cluster 64 Reserved sectors Number of FAT copies Max Root directory entries 512 Total sectors Media descriptor F8 Sectors per FAT 256 Sectors per

Let us now take a look at the 32-bit FAT system’s boot sector contents These are shown in Figure G.2 732 Let Us C Description Length Typical Values Jump instruction EB5890 OEM name MSWIN4.1 Bytes per

128 Reserved Boot signature 41 Volume ID 649825316 Volume label 11 ICIT File system type FAT32 Figure G.2 There are significant changes in the contents of the boo t sector of a 32-bit FAT system The entries ‘Number of hidden sectors’ and ‘Huge sectors’ have now been made 4-byte entries The first two bytes contain the low word of the value, whereas, the next two bytes contain the high word value The number of sectors per FAT in a 32-bit file system is likely to exceed what can be accommodated in two bytes Hence the entry ‘Sectors per FAT’ for a disk with a 32-bit file system would typically have a value The value of ‘Sectors per FAT’ is now stored as a 4-byte entity, with the similar arrangement of low word and high word as discussed earlier The boot sector of a 32-bit FAT system also has new entries like ‘Drive description flag’, ‘File system version’ ‘Starting cluster number of the root directory’, ‘Sector number of the file system information sector’, and the sector number of the ‘Backup boot sector’ The ‘Drive description flag’ is a two-byte entity Bit of this flag indicates whether or not the information written to the active FAT will be written to all copies of the FAT The low four bits of this entry contains the 0-based FAT number of the active FAT These bits are meaningful only if bit is set 734 Let Us C In the entry ‘File system version number’ the high byte contains the major version number, whereas, the low byte contains the minor version number The entry ‘File system information sector’ contains a value indicating the sector number where the file system information is present This file system information consists of the fields shown in Figure G.3 Description Length File system signature Total number of free clusters Sector number of the next free cluster Reserved Figure G.3 The entry ‘File information sector’ contains a value OFFFFh if there is no such sector The entry ‘Backup boot sector’ contains a value 0FFFFh is there is no backup boot sector Otherwise this value is any non-zero value less than the reserved sector count H Linux Installation 735 736 Let Us C T his appendix gives the steps that are to be carried out for installing Red Hat Linux 9.0 In addition I have also indicated a few commands that are necessary to compile and execute the programs given in Chapters 20 and 21 Follow the steps mentioned below to
