hi guys ,
I am a first year student!
can anyone help ..
the code. is .
main()
{
char *b="abc";
printf("%s",b);
}
the output is :abc.
my doubt is :
how can we assign a string constant to a pointer.And when we assign like this is a character array with the name b[] is initialised to "abc"?
and can anyone expalin this program:
#include<stdio.h>
main()
{
char *j="abc";
printf("%u\n%u\n","abc",&"abc");
printf("%u\n%u",j[1],j[0]);
}
and the out put was :
415
419
98
97

The pointer is assigned the address of an unnamed array which contains the string literal.

Well, first of all the behavior is undefined so what you see does not necessarily mean anything. At best you might be seeing the address of a string literal presented as an integer for the first two. The second two merely show that your system uses ASCII for characters.

thank you for your reply...hey i have another doubt too..i declared a character pointer....
when i assign a value i.e .. a string to a character pointer using gets()...i get the warning possible use of that 'character pointer'before declaration..but the program works :rolleyes: ...do you know why?
