C Programming

DECLARING ARRAYS
Arrays may consist of any of the valid data types. Arrays are declared along with all other variables in the declaration section of the program.


	/*  Introducing array's  */
	#include <stdio.h>

	main()
	{
		int   numbers[100];
		float  averages[20];
		
		numbers[2] = 10;
		--numbers[2];
		printf("The 3rd element of array numbers is %d\n", numbers[2]);
	}


	Sample Program Output
	The 3rd element of array numbers is 9

The above program declares two arrays, assigns 10 to the value of the 3rd element of array numbers, decrements this value ( --numbers[2] ), and finally prints the value. The number of elements that each array is to have is included inside the square brackets.
