Question details

1. Problem A Character literals

1.1 Specification

Write an ANSI-C program that reads input from the Standard input, and then outputs the processed information on the Standard output.

Each user input contains an integer, followed by a blank and then a character. If the character does represent a digit, e.g., '3', (how to check?), then the program outputs the sum of the integer and the numerical value that this character represents (how to get the numerical value of a character such as '3'?). If the character does not represent a digit, e.g., 'A', the program outputs that the character is not a digit.

The program continues until the input integer is -10000 (and is followed by a blank and any one character).

1.2 Implementation

  • name your program lab2A.c
  • keep on reading and processing input, until an integer -10000 is read.
  • use scanf ("%d %c", ..) to read inputs.
  • define a ‘Boolean’ function isDigit(char c) to determine if c represents a digit. We mentioned in class that ANSI-C does not have a type `boolean’, instead it uses 0 to

represent false, and use non-zero integer to represent true. So, as a general practice in C, your function should return a non-zero number (usually 1) if c is a digit and returns 0

otherwise.

Note that you should NOT use if c=='0' c=='1' c=='2' c=='3' … c=='9'. Instead, use the one-statement trick that we discussed in class.

  • Note that in getting the numerical value of a digit character such as '3', you should NOT use if c=='0' c=='1' c=='2' c=='3' … c=='9'. Instead, use the one-statement trick that we discussed in class.
  • put the definition (implementation) of function isDigit after your main function.
  • display the prompt and output as shown below.

1.3 Sample Inputs/Outputs: (ONE blank line between each interaction/iteration):

red 338 % gcc –Wall lab2A.c -o lab2a

red 339 % lab2a

Enter an integer and a character separated by blank>12 c Character 'c' does not represent a digit

Enter an integer and a character separated by blank>12 9 Character '9' represents a digit. Sum of 12 and 9 is 21

Enter an integer and a character separated by blank>100 8 Character '8' represents a digit. Sum of 100 and 8 is 108

Enter an integer and a character separated by blank>120 ! Character '!' does not represent a digit

Enter an integer and a character separated by blank>-10000 a red 340 %

Submit your program by issuing   submit 2031Z lab2 lab2A.c

2. Problem B character literals

2.1 Specification

Write an ANSI-C program that uses getchar and putchar to read from the Standard input, and outputs (duplicates) the characters to the Standard output. For each input character that is a lower-case letter (how to check?), converts it into the corresponding upper case letter in the output (how to convert?). The program continues to read and output until EOF is entered.

2.2 Implementation

You might want to start with the template file copy.c provided for lab1.

  • name your program lab2B.c
  • use getchar() and a loop to read characters.
  • use putchar() to print the input characters on the standard output.
  • do NOT use any other C library functions. Do your own checking and conversion. However, you should NOT use if c=='A' c=='B' c=='C' c=='D' … c=='Z'. Instead, use the one-statement trick discussed in class. ch as islower(), toupper().

2.3 Sample Inputs/Outputs (from Standard input):

red 308 % gcc –Wall –o lab2b lab2B.c

red 309 % lab2b

Hello The World

HELLO THE WORLD

How Old Are You?

HOW OLD ARE YOU?

I am 22, and THANKs!

I AM 22, AND THANKS!

^D (press Ctrl and D)

red 310 %

2.4 Sample Inputs/Outputs (from redirected input file):

Using your favorite text editor, create a text file my_input.txt that contains hEllo

How Are You!

I Am Good and THAnKs!

red 311 % lab2b < my_input.txt

HELLO

HOW ARE YOU!

I AM GOOD AND THANKS!

red 312 %
