C Exercises: Create a new array from a given array of integers shifting all zeros to left direction

C-programming basic algorithm: Exercise-71 with Solution

Write a C program to create a new array from a given array of integers shifting all zeros to left direction.

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
int main(void){ 
    int arr_size;
    int a1[] = {1, 2, 0, 3, 5, 7, 0, 9, 11};
    arr_size = sizeof(a1)/sizeof(a1[0]);
    printf("Elements in original array are: ");  
    print_array(a1, arr_size);
    int pos = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < arr_size; i++)
            {
                if (a1[i] == 0)
                {
                    a1[i] = a1[pos];
                    a1[pos++] = 0;
                }
            }

    arr_size = sizeof(a1)/sizeof(a1[0]);                
    printf("\nElements in new array are: ");  
    print_array(a1, arr_size);
    }      
 print_array(int parray[], int size)
  {
   int i;      
   for( i=0; i<size-1; i++)  
    {  
        printf("%d, ", parray[i]);  
    } 
   printf("%d ", parray[i]);  
   printf("\n");   
  }

Sample Output:

Elements in original array are: 1, 2, 0, 3, 5, 7, 0, 9, 11 

Elements in new array are: 0, 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 2, 9, 11

Previous: Write a C program to create a new array taking the elements after the element value 5 from a given array of integers.
Next: Write a C program to create a new array after replacing  all the values 5 with 0 shifting all zeros to right direction.
