C Exercises: Check whether a given year is a leap year or not

C Conditional Statement: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a C program to find whether a given year is a leap year or not.

Pictorial Presentation:

Check whether a given year is a leap year or not

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
void main()
{
    int chk_year;
 
    printf("Input a year :");
    scanf("%d", &chk_year);
    if ((chk_year % 400) == 0)
        printf("%d is a leap year.\n", chk_year);
    else if ((chk_year % 100) == 0)
        printf("%d is a not leap year.\n", chk_year);
    else if ((chk_year % 4) == 0)
        printf("%d is a leap year.\n", chk_year);
    else
        printf("%d is not a leap year \n", chk_year);
}

Sample Output:

Input a year :2016                                                                                            
2016 is a leap year.

C Programming: Tips of the Day

Why do C and C++ compilers allow array lengths in function signatures when they're never enforced?

It is a quirk of the syntax for passing arrays to functions.

Actually it is not possible to pass an array in C. If you write syntax that looks like it should pass the array, what actually happens is that a pointer to the first element of the array is passed instead.

Since the pointer does not include any length information, the contents of your [] in the function formal parameter list are actually ignored.
