Microsoft has long offered a compact alternative to the mainstream editions of SQL Server, but the SQL Server Compact Edition appears to be losing steam. It’s not particularly compact and has lost traction in some scenarios such as Windows Store apps, where it isn’t even permitted. Windows does include the Extensible Storage Engine, a very fast and efficient database engine. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide a SQL interpreter and, thus, is quite difficult to use for simple tasks.
An amazing little database engine called SQLite is, however, rapidly gaining ground. SQLite is a library in the best sense of the word. Unlike SQL Server Compact Edition, which is distributed as a set of hefty DLLs, SQLite ships in a single C source file. As the sqlite.org Web site advertises, SQLite is a software library that implements a self-contained, server-less, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine.
That’s a wonderful thing; and to top it off, Microsoft has blessed its use in Windows Store and Windows Phone apps. Of course, SQLite is written entirely in C and the API is, well, a little awkward. At the end of the day, however, it is just C, and modern C++ can make working with SQLite a breeze. It just takes a little up-front attention to detail.

In this article, we’ll take a look at using the isdigit() function in C/C++. This is a very simple way to check if any value is a digit or not. Let’s look at how to use this function, using some simple examples.

In this article, we’ll take a look at using the strdup() function in C/C++.
The strdup() function is very useful if you want to duplicate the contents of a string onto another string.
Let’s see how we can utilize this function, using some simple examples.

C and C++ are the most powerful programming language in the world. Most of the super fast and complex libraries and algorithms are written in C or C++. Most powerful Kernel programs are also written in C. So, there is no way to skip it.
In programming competitions, most programmers prefer to write code in C or C++. Tourist is considered the worlds top programming contestant of all ages who write code in C++.
During programming competitions, programmers prefer to use a lightweight editor to focus on coding and algorithm designing. Vim, Sublime Text, and Notepad++ are the most common editors for us. Apart from the competition, many software developers and professionals love to use Sublime Text just because of its flexibility.
I have discussed the steps we need to complete in this blog post before running a C/C++ code in Sublime Text. We will take the inputs from an input file and print outputs to an output file without using
freopen file related functions in C/C++.

If you are familiar with C/C++then you must have come across some unusual things and if you haven’t, then you are about to. The below codes are checked twice before adding, so feel free to share this article with your friends. The following displays some of the issues:
The below code generates no error since a print function can take any number of inputs but creates a mismatch with the variables. The print function is used to display characters, strings, integers, float, octal, and hexadecimal values onto the output screen. The format specifier is used to display the value of a variable.
A signed integer is a 32-bit datum that encodes an integer in the range [-2147483648 to 2147483647]. An unsigned integer is a 32-bit datum that encodes a non-negative integer in the range [0 to 4294967295]. The signed integer is represented in twos-complement notation. In the below code the signed integer will be converted to the maximum unsigned integer then compared with the unsigned integer.
