Most Common Programming Errors in C



Hello Friends

In this post, I am telling about some common programming errors that are mostly occurred at the time of writing a program in C Programming language. These errors are as follows:



     
common programming erors in c

(1) Missing semicolon: Every C statement must end with a semicolon. A missing semicolon is
confusion to the compiler and may result in misleading error messages.

(2) Missing braces: Very common error as it is common to forget a closing brace. Number of
opening braces should match number of closing braces.

(3) Undeclared variables: C requires declaration of variables before their use.
Forgetting the precedence of operators: Expression are evaluated according to precedence
of operators. It is very common for beginners to forget this.

(4)  Mismatch of parameters in function calls: There may be mismatch in actual and formal
parameters in function calls.

(5)  Missing ‘&’ operator in scanf call.

(6) Crossing the bounds of an array.

(7) Unending and sometimes wrong loops.

(8) Using uninitialized pointer that points to garbage.

(9)  Improper comment characters.
