  • Declaring string by char array
char c[11]={'i', 'n', 't', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'i', 'p', 'a', 'a', 't' ,’\0'};
  • Declaring string by string literal
char c[]="intellipaat";


#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
void main ()
char c1[11]={'i', 'n', 't', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'i', 'p', 'a', 'a', 't' ,’\0'};
char c2[]="intellipaat";
printf("Char Array Value : %s\n", c1);
printf("String Literal Value : %s\n", c2);

Char Array Value: intellipaatString Literal Value is: intellipaat
