Keywords are the reserved words used in programming. Each keywords has fixed meaning and that cannot be changed by user. For example:
Here, int is a keyword that indicates, 'money' is of type integer.
As, C programming is case sensitive, all keywords must be written in lowercase. Here is the list of all keywords predefined by ASCII C.
Besides these keywords, there are some additional keywords supported by Turbo C.
All these keywords, their syntax and application will be discussed in their respective topics. However, if you want brief information about these keywords without going further visit page: list of all C keywords.
In C programming, identifiers are names given to C entities, such as variables, functions, structures etc. Identifier are created to give unique name to C entities to identify it during the execution of program. For example:
int money; int mango_tree;
Here, money is a identifier which denotes a variable of type integer. Similarly, mango_tree is another identifier, which denotes another variable of type integer.
Rules for writing identifier
Tips for Good Programming Practice :
Programmer can choose the name of identifier whatever they want. However, if the programmer choose meaningful name for an identifier, it will be easy to understand and work on, particularly in case of large program.
