Functions writtein in C language can be called by almost every other language. For example: most, if not all, the win32 api functions for MS-Windows operating system were written in C language and some assembly. Yet all these functions can be called by every other existing language such as Visual Basic, assembly, pascal, cobol, C#, fortran, etc.
why its ideal for engineering solutions -- I have no idea because I never took an engineering course.
C is good for engeneering for two very simple reasons:
1) the code is very, very light (not every computer has 4Gig of RAM => microcontroller (between 512Bytes and 4KB))
2) it can easily be ported to different CPU-architectures. Especially in engeneering most robots and machines their own CPU (think of the car-industry but also dish-washer and microwaves).
And it is relatively simple to write a c-compiler for one of these CPUs. That also makes you code portable.
Hi. I have a form with list box : lst_product, datagridview : grd_order and button: btn_addline. lst_product has a list of product ids selected from database (MS Acess 2013) , grd_order is by default empty except for 2 headers and btn_addline adds rows to grd_order.
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
I am writing a java program that needs to execute shell commands, so I wrote a function that would take the command to execute as a string (ie: "mkdir ~/Folder1") and execute that command with the shell. Here is the function:
Runtime run = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process pr = ...
