diff in putchar(c) and printf("%c",c);

hi all ,

could any tell me the diffrence between



main()
{
char c='h';

printf("%c",c);

}


and main()
{
char c = 'h';
printf("c",putchar(c));
}
# 2  
Yes, the second example is plain silly.
# 3  
putchar(c) is a macro defined as:
Code:
 putc(c, stdout)

printf() is a function. Porter's comment is directed to the fact that the printf() example you gave is wrong.
Code:
printf("%c", c);
