C# - Variables

A variable is everything in programming, in which we can store values also change it during program execution. Before declare a variable in c#, must use type of it, so you say Each variable in C# has a specific type. You can perform multiple operation on a single variable, which value stored in memory. Now in this topic we will cover
1. How to declare a variable
2. How to internalize a variable.
3. Types of a variable

1. How to declare a variable
 during the declaration of a variable, we use type of it. Through comma separation we declare multiple variable with single type. Lets take a simple syntax with example.

Syntax of single variable declaration 
<data_type> single_variable_declaration;
Example of single variable declaration
int Employee_age;

Syntax of list of variable declaration
<data_type> variable1, variable2, .....variableN;
Example of list of variable declaration
String Employee_Name, Employee_address, Employee_Country;

2. How to initialize a variable
The meaning of initialization is assigning some value into the variable. There are two types of initialization, first one is declaration time initialization, in which we can assign some value into the variable at declaration time. Lets take simple example
int employee_age=24;
In this example we are passing value(24) from the right side to left side. Also here we use assignment operator, In later session we will discuss about operators.

The last one is after declaration, in which we can pass the value into the variable after declaration of it. Like
int a,b,c; // Declaration over
a=10 ; // after initialization 
b=20 ; // after initialization 

c=a+b; // expression initialization

3. Types of a variable
In the c#, there are two types of variable, first one is local variable and second one is global variable. If we initialize a variable outside the block known as global variable you can consider public specifier as a example of it. If we initialize it inside the block known as local variable. lets take a simple example.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication4
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

            int a = 10;
                int b;
                a = 20;
            b = 30;  // b is a local variable , can't initialize here. 
In this program we get error because a local variable can't initialize outside the block.

In this program we get error because a local variable can't initialize outside the block.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
