Hi folks, what’s happening? My last tutorial was about Calculate circumference, area and perimeter in C. Let’s look at how to swap two numbers in C Programming Language.This is the sixth program of [I] section of Chapter 1:Getting Started of the book, “Let us C” by “Yashwant Kanetkar”.Do let us know if you have any doubts or suggestions in the comments section below.

Question:

Two numbers are input through the keyboard in two locations C and D. Write a C program to interchange the contents of C and D.

Solution to swap two numbers in C

We accept two numbers from the user. We write a function swap with two parameters to allocate the memory locations. We then use a temporary location to store a number and then swap the numbers. We then, display the swapped numbers in the console. This program also displays the use of pointers.
