C vs

Learn the way to Implement the same logic in C and Python Programming languages at the same time.

C Program

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
    printf("Hello, World\n");
    return 0;
}

Python Program

print("Hello, World")

Python program looks simple and one-liner isn’t it ? but, there are some differences to note and understand.

Similarities:

  • Name of the function : In C program it is “printf” and in Python in it is “print”, but the both does the same job, that is to print text to the screen.

Differences:

  • Header File : C program requires a header file ‘stdio.h’ to recognise and locate the ‘printf()’ from its library of functions.
  • Main Function : C program requires a ‘main()’ to identify the starting point of the program (i.e., from where to start executing) and the rest of the program to be placed in a pair of ‘{ }’ brackets.
  • Semi Colons : C program requires a ‘;’ at the end of each line, where as Python which is not required.
