            char *str2 = "karan";
            return 0;
    } //main closes
    int   str_cat(char *st1, char *st2)
            for(; *st1 != '\0'; st1++)
                    if(*st1 == '\0')
                            printf("check ");          //not goin in if statement, it goes till s
                            for(;*st2 != '\0';st2++)
                             *st2 == *st1;
                            printf("The value of *st2=\n\n\n\n\n%c",*st2);
                             //return *st2;

    Agreed - closed.
    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.
