Functions and Pointers in C Programming Language (Part 1)

Unconsciously we depend on such huge numbers of people for such a large number of things. Human is a smart species yet at the same time can’t play out the majority of life’s assignments isolated. We need to depend on others. You may call a mechanic to repair your bicycle, employ a nursery worker to cut your yard or depend on a store to supply you perishables consistently. A PC program ends up in a comparable circumstance. It can’t deal with every one of the errands independent from anyone else. Rather, it demands different projects like substances—called ‘Function’ in C language to complete its undertakings. Beginning with the easiest one and afterward progressing in the direction of those that show the intensity of C functions.

What is a Function in C Program?

A Function is an independent block of statement that plays out a reasonable errand or something to that effect. Each C program can be thought of as an accumulation of this function. As we noted before, utilizing a function is something like employing a man to complete a particular occupation for you. In some cases the connection with this individual is extremely basic; once in a while, it’s complex.

Assume you have an undertaking that is constantly performed precisely similarly—say an every other month servicing of your motorbike. When you need it to be done, you go to the administration station and say, “Now is the ideal time, do it now”. You don’t have to give directions, in light of the fact that the technician knows his activity. You shouldn’t be told when the activity is finished. You expect the bike would be serviced in the standard way, the technician does it and it’s a simple as that.

Let’s take a look a following an example C function program to known how that program works similarly as the bike mechanic. All things considered, we will take an example at two things—a function that calls or activates the functions and the function itself.

main( )
message( );
printf ("\n Study More and More than You will Be Passed Exam!");
message( )
printf ("\n Practice More than you will be learned C Program....");

                     And here’s the output...
        Practice More than you will be learned C Program....
        Study More and More than You will Be Passed Exam!

This is how the above program will perform the function,  main( ) itself is a function and through it, we are calling the function message( ). The actual meaning of when we say main( ) ‘calls’ the function message( )? We imply that the control goes to the function message( ). The action of main( ) is briefly suspended; it nods off while the message( ) work awakens and goes to work. At the point when the message( ) work comes up short on the statement to execute, the control comes back to main( ), which springs up again and starts executing its code at the correct point the last known point of interest. Along these lines, main( ) turns into the ‘calling’ function, while message( ) turns into the ‘called’ function.
