Answers to all questions are freely available on numerous sites, and I can and will consult them if need be, but I would rather ask here as I would rather do the "bulk" of the question myself, as in the case here. Simply consulting the answer is not very academically useful.

I generally gain useful nuggets of wisdom here that I will not gain elsewhere.

Hi Riker1204,
I believe flimbar was asking whether or not this was a homework assignment. As you know, homework assignments are only accepted at The UNIX & Linux Forums in the homework and coursework questions subforum under special homework rules.

Obviously disedorgue and Corona688 did not believe that this was a homework assignment and it didn't appear to me to be one to me either, but it is close to that point where we start to wonder. When you start threads like this in the future, you might want to explicitly mention what you are doing and what prompted you to ask your question so readers won't wonder if you're asking us to do your homework for you.

Cheers,
Don

PS. What is the classic K&M C programming language book you referenced? The classic C book I usually think about is K&R C.

Hey Don,

I meant K&R! Sorry for the confusion.

Also, very happy to follow your instructions, which means stating I am solving a question from a book and possibly the question itself ( correct?).

None of my work is "homework", as I'm not in school nor getting graded and such. Simply learning for learning sake.

Thanks

Not a problem. (The keys on my keyboard seem to move while I'm typing sometimes too. Linux )

Yes, stating that you are a self-taught student working on a question from a book, citing the book, and quoting the question always helps.

We are all hoping to learn from others on this site, and hopefully, help others learn from our experiences; that's what we're all here to do.

Perhaps if you use a suitable C interpreter. I haven't tried it, but you could have a look at Ch : Ch -- an embeddable C/C++ interpreter, C and C++ scripting language
