- Every C program is a collection of instructions and every instruction is a group of some individual units.
- Every smallest particularly individual unit of a ‘C’ program is called token.
instruction used in any c program is a collection of tokens. The main and
particular work of tokens are to
construct c programs and they are said to the basic building blocks of a c
In a c program, some very popular tokens are the following:-
- Special Symbols
- Data values
In a C program, collection of all the keywords, identifiers, operators, special symbols, constants, strings and data values are called as tokens.
Let us see the following C program:-
C program to print all the characters of C character Set
printf(“ASCII ==> Character\n”);
for(i = -128; i <= 127; i++)
printf(“%d ==> %c\n”, i, i);
In the above program 22 tokens are used.
