Basic C Programs for Beginners

The general form of a C program is as follows:

Pre-processor directives
Global declaration
Main()
{
Local variables to function main;
Statements associated with function  main();
}
Fun1()
{
Local variables to function fun1();
Statements associates with function fun1();
}
Fun2()
{
Local variables to function fun2();
Statements associates with function fun2();
}
