Section II
Advanced C and C++

Pointers in C: - Declartions, referencing and de-referencing, passing pointers
(passing value by reference) to functions, pointers to array.
Use of command line arguments in C.

Structures and union: Defining and processing a structure, pointers and
structures, passing structures, passing structures, through a function.
Unions, Examples to stress the use of union instead of structures.
Concept of dynamic allocation of memory and functions such as mallloc ,
calloc , realloc, sizeof operator, free, linked list, bitwise operators and bit
fields, use of macros in C.
