    Seroiusly? You don't know what data types are?
    Pull out your C textbook (or any decent online tutorial) and start reading.

    a) 1
    b) C does not have a string type
    c) 1
    d) 1

    Program Design Exam Challenge!

    found an old exercises about program designing and the answer key is GONE unfortunately..
    just for fun, test your knowledge...
    ready..
    1.)For each of the following, state which kind of program development aid is involved:
    a.)Extracting and printing data from files.
    b.)Providing large volumes of data with which to allow programs to be tested exhaustively.
    c.)Monitoring the execution of a program, allowing the programmer to interrupt execution in order to track down or fix bugs
    d.)Designing screen layouts, which are then processed and turned into appropriate program code.
    e.)Making use of prototyping to reduce development time and programming effort.

    2.)Explain with an example what is meant by "stepwise refinement"
    3.) Explain what is meant by "structured programming"



    4.)Briefly explain white box testing.
    5.)Explain and give an example of each, for the two types of errors which can be found in testing and debugging a program.

    Also, C really does not have a string type. Are you sure this is not a question about C++?
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Threads merged and moved (FWIW).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
