    What is qualifier in c

    this is not assignment and homework question

    My question is what do you understand term 'qualifier" in c language

    I am neither asking about const nor asking about volatile. I know both are the qualifier in c language

    How do you define qualifier in simple terms?

    Other languages might call them 'attributes'.
    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.

    So what's your question then?

    If you're looking for meaning...
