The Greatest Common Divisor of two positive integers can be calculated iteratively by the following formula known as Euclid's algorithm. You can see that this is a recursive definition with GCD(m,n) defined in terms of GCD(n,m%n).

In this example, we use two for loops in conjunction with the putchar library function to print all uppercase letters followed by all lowercase letters. The loop variable ch is assumed to be of type char or int. The first for loop prints the uppercase letters as loop variable ch assumes values as ‘A’, 'B’, ... , ‘z’.

Consider that we wish to determine the result of a student in the SSC (Secondary School Certificate) examination, which has six subjects: four of 100 marks each and two of 150 marks each.

These statements determine and print the absolute value of variable n. If n is negative, then n < 0 evaluates as true and n is assigned the value of -n, which is then printed in the next statement assuming variable n to be of some integer type. However, if the value of n is positive, it remains unchanged and is printed.

Perfect numbers are positive integers which have the special property that the sum of all their factors equals the number itself, e.g., 6 = 1+2+3. The C program finds and prints out all perfect numbers less than 1000.

The while loop is particularly suitable when the number of iterations is not known or can not be determined in advanced. In this section, another loop that is useful in similar situations, the do ... while loop is discussed.

The for loop is used for repetitive execution of a statement or a group of statements. It is a very powerful and flexible statement of the C language. It is generally used in situations where the number of iterations of the loop statement is known or can be determined in advance.

Often we wish to perform more than one operation when the condition in an if statement evaluates as true and/or false as shown in Fig. In such situations, we use block statements (also called compound statements) within the if statement.

As a good programming practice, we display a message to prompt the user before accepting data from the keyboard. This enables the user to enter the required data correctly. However, the user may still enter incorrect data. Such data may cause the programs to print incorrect results.
