Example text

Here you’re declaring that the variable salary will have the value 10000. You’re storing the value on the right (10000) in the variable on the left (salary). The = symbol is called the assignment operator because it assigns the value on the right to the variable on the left. ", salary); There are now two arguments inside the parentheses, separated by a comma. An argument is a value that’s passed to a function. In this program statement, the two arguments to the printf() function are as follows: • Argument 1 is a control string, so called because it controls how the output specified by the following argument (or arguments) is to be presented.

There really should be a semicolon at the end of that printf() line. As you start writing your own programs, you’ll probably get a lot of errors during compilation that are caused by simple punctuation mistakes. It’s so easy to forget a comma or a bracket, or to just press the wrong key. Don’t worry about this; a lot of experienced programmers make exactly the same mistakes—even after years of practice. As I said earlier, just one mistake can sometimes result in a whole stream of abuse from your compiler, as it throws you a multitude of different things that it doesn’t like.

Note Conversion specifiers always start with a % character so that the printf() function can recognize them. Because a % in a control string always indicates the start of a conversion specifier, if you want to output a % character you must use the sequence %%. h> int main(void) { int brothers; int brides; brothers = 7; brides = 7; /* Declare a variable called brothers */ /* and a variable called brides */ /* Store 7 in the variable brothers /* Store 7 in the variable brides */ */ /* Display some output */ printf("%d brides for %d brothers", brides, brothers); return 0; } If you run this program you should get the following output: 7 brides for 7 brothers How It Works This program works in a very similar way to the previous example.
