C pointers example programs

C Language Pointers -Pointers are the main and very useful feature of C programming. Pointers are special kind of variable by its amazing features; these are the variables that can store address of another variable.

Pointers can stores address of another variables, can access value of that variable (which address is stored in the pointer variable), can assign value to that variable too.

Here are some features of pointers

  • By using pointers we can get multiple values from the function, as we know a function can return only one value but by passing arguments as pointers we can get more than one values from the pointer.
  • By using pointers dynamic memory can be created according to the program use. We can save memory from static (compile time) declarations.
  • By using pointers we can design and develop complex data structures like STACK, QUEUE, LINKED LIST etc.
  • Amazing feature of pointes: Pointers provide direct memory access.

Here are some disadvantages of the pointers

Since pointers has many features but there are some disadvantages of pointers

  • Failed to protect memory addresses (locations) - Since pointer can access direct memory so memory cannot be protected.
  • Uninitialized pointers can cause of segmentation fault.
  • Pointers variables are slower than normal variables.
  • Pointers always required Free Memory for Dynamically Allocated Memory.

Here are the lists of some solved c programming pointers solved programs/examples for your practice, all programs have source code with output and explanation. This section contains solved programs on pointers, pointers with simple variable, pointers with conditional and control statements, array and pointers, pointers with strings, structure and unions.



List of C pointers Programs

List of other C programs

  1. C program to declare memory for an integer variable dynamically.
    Dynamic Memory Allocation Example: In this C program, we are will declare an integer pointer and allocate memory for an integer variable at run time using malloc().
  2. C program to read and print name, where memory for variable should be declared at run time.
    Dynamic Memory Allocation Example: In this C program, we will declare memory character array (to read name) at run time, will read name and print the string.
  3. C program to find sum of array elements using Dynamic Memory Allocation.
    Dynamic Memory Allocation Example: In this C program, we will declare memory for array elements (limit will be at run time) using malloc(), read element and print the sum of all elements along with the entered elements.
  4. C Program to find the sum of digits of a number until a single digit is occurred.
    C Program to find the sum of digits of a number until a single digit is occurred (without using recursion or iterative(loop) statements).
  5. C program to find class of an IP Address.
    This program will print the class of a given (user input) IP address.
  6. Stringizing Operator in C - Program to print variable name in C.
    This program will print the variable name using stringizing operator.
