C is a powerful system programming language and is commonly used to program operating systems such as Unix. One of the main advantages of programming in C is that it allows the programmer to write directly to memory. This means that key constructs such as pointers, constants, and strings can be used within the memory in an efficient and machine-independent fashion. The Alison free online “C Programming – Using Pointers, Constants, and Strings” course covers topics such as using pointers for direct memory access and manipulation in C.
This free online computer programming course will be of great interest to IT and software professionals who would like to learn more about this powerful and efficient programming language, to all learners who would like to learn more about the kind of programming language that is used to develop operating systems, and to those learners who want to follow on from the Introduction to Programming in C course.
C Programming – Using Pointers, Constants, and Strings Course Content
In this course, you will learn more about using pointers, constants, and strings when programming with C. You will learn why pointers contain memory addresses of multi-byte variables, how to visualize RAM in a new way, changing the memory address contained within a pointer and about constants and string literals.
The course includes the following topics:
- Using pointers for direct memory access and manipulation in C;
- How to change the memory address contained within a pointer;
- Why you need to learn pointers;
- The char pointer;
- Constants and string literals in C;
- The character string as an array of characters in C.
