The C Development Cycle

Hi.. In this i am going to tell you about the C Development life cycle. I got this idea from the C for Dummies book.
The C Development Cycle

Here is how you create a C program in seven steps — in what’s known as the
development cycle:
1. Come up with an idea for a program.
2. Use an editor to write the source code.
3. Compile the source code and link the program by using the C compiler.
4. Weep bitterly over errors (optional).
5. Run the program and test it.
6. Pull out hair over bugs (optional).
7. Start over (required).
No need to memorize this list. It’s like the instructions on a shampoo bottle,
though you don’t have to be naked and wet to program a computer. Eventually,
just like shampooing, you start following these steps without thinking about it.
No need to memorize anything.

The C development cycle is not an exercise device. In fact, programming does more to make your butt fit more snugly into your chair than anything.
 Step 1 is the hardest. The rest fall naturally into place.
 Step 2 consists of two steps: compiling and linking.


  1. Indeed!

    I'm suggesting anything about the Computer Science course. Haha! Anyway, I do have a blog for codes but it's not that good compared to this post. Keep it up!
