Data Types in C Programming Language


To communicate with computer, we need to pass different data to the computer. Data passed to the computer can be of different types, namely, a single character, an integer number, floating point or fractional number, or string (collection of characters).

In each case, memory is required to store these data and size of memory required is different for each data types.

Way of representing different types of data during programming is known as data types.

C supports several data types, each of which are represented differently within computer’s memory. The memory requirement of each data type will determine the possible range of values for that data type.
