Introduction to Java Script

Java Script is used in many of Web pages to improve the design, validate forms and create cookies.
JavaScript is the popular scripting language on the internet, and works in all major browser, such as Internet Explorer, Opera and Firefox.
JavaScript, despite the name, is essentially not related to Java programming language, both have the common C syntax, and JavaScript copies many Java names and naming conversions. The language was initially named "LiveScript" but was renamed in a co-marketing deal between Sun and Netscape in exchange for Netscape bundling Sun's Java runtime with their dominant browser. key design principles within JavaScript are inherited from the Self and Scheme programming languages.


JavaScript was developed by Brendan Eich of Netscape under the name Mocha, which was later renamed to 'LiveScript', and finallt to JavaScript. Change of name from LiveScript to JavaScript roughly coincided with Netscape adding support for Java technology in its Netscape navigator web browser. JavaScript was first introduced in the Netscape browser version 2.0B3 in December 1995. Naming was caused confusion, giving the impression that language is a spin -off  of Java, and it has been characterized by many as a marketing ploy by Netscape to give JavaScript the cachet of what was then the hot new web -programming language.
Microsoft named its dialect of language JScript to avoid trademark issues. JScript was first supported in Internet Explorer version 3.0 released in August 1996, and it included Y2K-compliant date functions, unlike those based on java.util.Date in JavaScript at the time. Dialects are perceived to be so similar that the terms "JavaScript" and "JScript" are often used interchangeably Microsoft notes dozens of ways in which JScript is not ECMA complaint.
Netscape submitted JavaScript to ECMA International for standardization resulting in standardized version named ECMAScript.


  1. Java Script is a scripting language.
  2. Java Script was designed to add interactivity to HTML pages.
  3. A Scripting language is a lightweight programming language.
  4. Java Script is an interpreted language (means that scripts execute without preliminary compilation)
  5. Java Script is usually embedded directly into HTML pages.
  6. Everyone can use Java Script without purchasing a licence.

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 …
