Five common pointer mistakes in C programming

Pointer is the most important and powerful tool in C language. Pointer resolves many complicated problems easily but if you don’t have the sufficient knowledge of pointers, you will face problems like segmentation fault etc.

In this article, I will describe five common pointer mistakes in C programming which generally occurs.

Queue implementation using linked list, enqueue and dequeue in C

Write a C program to implement queue data structure using linked list. In this post I will explain queue implementation using linked list in C language.

In previous post, I explained about queue implementation using array. Here, I will explain how to implement a basic queue using linked list in C programming. Along with I will explain how to perform enqueue and dequeue operations on Queue in C language.

Dynamic memory allocation in C programming

Dynamic memory allocation refers to the process of manual memory management (allocation and deallocation). Dynamic memory allocation in C is performed via a group of built-in functions malloc(), calloc(), realloc() and free(). Some text also refer Dynamic memory allocation as Runtime memory allocation.

Compile time and runtime memory allocation

Data at the centric level is most crucial part of every program that you have written. All programs contain memory allocation, deallocation and data manipulation. In this article, I am going to discuss about memory allocation and different ways to allocate memory in C.
