Functions in C

Here is a little program calling an external function. It has 3 files:

  • the main function called callMySin.c:


  • the function implementation mysin.c


  • and the include file mysin.h


When you execute the program callMySin, what does it print?

Here is how I try to compile it: What am I doing wrong?


Can you write a Makefile to compile this program correctly?

Command line parameters:

I have a program named myProg which takes 4 parameters and which I execute as follows:

./myProg uli 65 ike 35

What is the value of:

  • argc

  • argv[0]

  • argv[5]

  • (argv[3])[1]

My program needs the second and forth parameter as integer values. As we have learned, the argv[x] however are strings. What do I have to do?

Write a piece of code that makes sure that the user enters exactly 4 parameters

How can I check if the first parameter is the string “uli” and the second one the string “ike”?


In the following Makefile which, builds the hello world program:


which elements are

  • macros

  • targets

  • dependencies

What does $(RM) do?

What do $@ and $^ mean and, in the above Makefile example, into which values do these expand to?
