The Standard C Library1

The C Standard Library2

The C Standard LibraryI/O stdio.hprintf, scanf, puts, gets, open, close, read, write,fprintf, fscanf, fseek, Memory and string operationsstring.hmemcpy, memcmp, memset,strlen, strncpy, strncat, strncmp,strtod, strtol, strtoul, Character Testing ctype.hisalpha, isdigit, isupper,tolower, toupper, Argument Processingstdarg.hva list, va start, va arg, va end, 3

The C Standard LibraryUtility functionsstdlib.hrand, srand, exit, system, getenv,malloc, free, atoi, Timetime.hclock, time, gettimeofday, Jumpssetjmp.hsetjmp, longjmp, Processesunistd.hfork, execve, Signals signals.hsignal, raise, wait, waitpid, Implementation-defined constants limits.h, float.hINT MAX, INT MIN, DBL MAX, DBL MIN, 4

Formatted Outputint printf(char *format, )Sends output to standard outputint fprintf(FILE *stream, char *format, );Sends output to a fileint sprintf(char *str, char *format, )Sends output to a string variableReturn Value: The number of characters printed(not including trailing \0)On Error: A negative value is returned.5

Formatted OutputThe format string is copied as-is to output.Except the % character signals a formatting action.Format directives specificationsCharacter (%c), String (%s), Integer (%d), Float (%f)Fetches the next argument to get the valueFormatting commands for padding or truncating output and forleft/right justification%10s ! Pad short string to 10 characters, right justified%-10s ! Pad short string to 10 characters, left justified%.10s ! Truncate long strings after 10 characters%10.15s ! Pad to 10, but truncate after 15, right justifiedFor more details:man 3 printf6

Formatted Output#include stdio.h int main() {char *p;float f;p "This is a test”;f 909.2153258;printf(":%10.15s:\n", p);printf(":%15.10s:\n", p);printf(":%0.2f:\n", f);printf(":%15.5f:\n", f);}return 0;////////right justified,right justified,Cut off anythingCut off anythingtruncate to 15, pad to 10truncate to 10, pad to 15after 2nd decimal, no padafter 5th decimal, pad to 15OUTPUT:% test printf example:This is a test::This is a ::909.22::909.21533:%7

Formatted Inputint scanf(char *format, )Read formatted input from standard inputint fscanf(FILE *stream, const char *format, .);Read formatted input from a fileint sscanf(char *str, char *format, )Read formatted input from a stringReturn value: Number of input items assigned.Note that the arguments are pointers!8

Example: scanf#include stdio.h int main(){int x;scanf("%d", &x);printf("%d\n", x);}Why are pointers given to scanf?9

Example: scanf#include stdio.h int main(){long x;scanf("%ld", &x);printf("%ld\n", x);}Why are pointers given to scanf?10

Input Error Checking#include stdio.h #include stdlib.h int main() {int a, b, c;printf("Enter the first value: ");if (scanf("%d",&a) 0) {perror("Input error\n");exit(255);}printf("Enter the second value: ");if (scanf("%d",&b) 0) {perror("Input error\n");exit(255);}c a b;printf("%d %d %d\n", a, b, c);return 0;OUTPUT:}% test scanf exampleEnter the first value: 20Enter the second value: 3020 30 50%11

Line-Based I/Oint puts(char *line)Outputs string pointed to by line followed by newline character tostdoutchar *gets(char *s)Reads the next input line from stdin into buffer pointed to by sNull terminateschar *fgets(char *s, int size, FILE * stream)“size” is the size of the buffer.Stops reading before buffer overrun.Will store the \n, if it was getchar()Reads a character from stdinReturns it as an int (0.255)Returns EOF (i.e., -1) if “end-of-file” or “error”.12

General I/O13

Error handlingStandard error (stderr)Used by programs to signal error conditionsBy default, stderr is sent to displayMust redirect explicitly even if stdout sent to filefprintf(stderr, “getline: error on input\n”);perror(“getline: error on input”);Typically used in conjunction with errno return error codeerrno single global variable in all C programsInteger that specifies the type of errorEach call has its own mappings of errno to causeUsed with perror to signal which error occurred14

Example#include stdio.h #include fcntl.h #define BUFSIZE 16int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {int fd,n;char buf[BUFSIZE];}if ((fd open(argv[1], O RDONLY)) -1)perror("cp: can't open file");do {if ((n read(fd, buf, BUFSIZE)) 0)if (write(1, buf, n) ! n)perror("cp: write error to stdout");} while(n BUFSIZE);return 0;% cat opentest.txtThis is a test of CS 201and the open(), read(),and write() calls.% ./opentest opentest.txtThis is a test of CS 201and the open(), read(),and write() calls.% ./opentest asdfasdfcp: can't open file: No such file or directory%15

I/O Redirection in the Shell16

I/O via “File” Interface17

I/O via “File” Interface#include stdio.h #include string.h main (int argc, char** argv) {char *p argv[1];FILE *fp;}fp fopen ("tmpfile.txt","w ");fwrite (p, strlen(p), 1, fp);fclose (fp);return 0;OUTPUT:% test file ops HELLO% cat tmpfile.txtHELLO%18

Memory allocation and management(void *) malloc (int numberOfBytes)Dynamically allocates memory from the heapMemory persists between function invocations (unlike local variables)Returns a pointer to a block of at least numberOfBytes bytesNot zero filled!Allocate an integerint* iptr (int*) malloc(sizeof(int));Allocate a structurestruct name* nameptr (struct name*) malloc(sizeof(struct name));Allocate an integer array with “n” elementsint *ptr (int *) malloc(n * sizeof(int));19

Memory allocation and management(void *) malloc (int numberOfBytes)Be careful to allocate enough memory!Overrun on the space is undefined!!!Common error:char *cp (char *) malloc(strlen(buf)*sizeof(char))NOTE: strlen doesn’t account for the NULL terminator!Fix:char *cp (char *) malloc((strlen(buf) 1)*sizeof(char))20

Memory allocation and managementvoid free(void * p)Deallocates memory in heap.Pass in a pointer that was returned by malloc.Exampleint* iptr (int*) malloc(sizeof(int));free(iptr);Examplestruct table* tp (struct table*) malloc(sizeof(struct table));free(tp);Freeing the same memory block twice corrupts memoryand leads to exploits!21

Memory allocation and managementSometimes, before you use memory returned bymalloc, you want to zero itOr maybe set it to a specific valuememset() sets a chunk of memory to a specific valuevoid *memset(void *s, int ch, int n);Set this memory to this value for this number of bytes22

Memory allocation and managementHow to move a block of bytes efficiently?void *memmove(void *dest, void *src, int n);How to allocate zero-filled chunk of memory?void *calloc(int numberThings, int sizeOfThings);Note:These slides use “int”However, “size t” is better.Makes code more portable.“size t” ! unsigned integer.23

Other string functionsConverting strings to numbers#include stdlib.h long strtol (char *ptr, char **endptr, int base);long long strtoll (char *ptr, char **endptr, int base);Takes a character string and converts it to a long (long) integer.White space and or - are OK.Starts at beginning of ptr and continues until something nonconvertible is encountered.Examples:endptr (if not null, giveslocation of whereparsing stoppeddue to error)String"157""-1.6"" 50x""twelve""x506"Value returned157-1500034

Other string functionsdouble strtod (char * str, char **endptr);String to floating pointHandles digits 0-9.A decimal point.An exponent indicator (e or E).If no characters are convertible a 0 is returned.Examples:String"12""-0.123""123E 3""123.1e-5"Value returned12.000000-0.123000123000.0000000.00123135

Examples/* strtol Converts an ASCII string to its integerequivalent; for example, converts "-23.5" to -23. */int my value;char my string[] "-23.5";my value strtol(my string, NULL, 10);printf("%d\n", my value);36

Random number generation37

Random number generation#include stdio.h int main(int argc, char** argv) {int i,seed;}seed atoi(argv[1]);srand(seed);for (i 0; i 10; i )printf("%d : %d\n", i , rand());OUTPUT:%0123456789%./myrand 30: 493850533: 1867792571: 1191308030: 1240413721: 2134708252: 1278462954: 1717909034: 1758326472: 1352639282: 108137309938

MakefilesThe make utility: Compile things as necessary:makeThe makefile: Recipe for compiling your code.Call it makefile or Makefile (big or little M)The “make” utility will use that by defaultYou only have to specify the name if it’s called something elseThe first rule in the makefile is used by default if youjust say “make” with no argumentsThe second line of each rule (the command) must startwith a tab, not spaces!39
