An operator is a symbol which helps the user to command the computer to do a certain mathematical or logical manipulations. Operators are used in C language program to operate on data and variables. C has a rich set of operators which can be classified as

Example: Suppose in byte that has a value 10101101 . We wish to check whether bit number 3 is ON (1) or OFF (0) . Since we want to check the bit number 3, the second operand for AND operation we choose is binary 00001000, which is equal to 8 in decimal.

We can systematically test the value of a variable (or an expression) in a continuous range. Consider that we have to print the result and class obtained by a student in a single subject using the rules given below.

These statements determine and print the larger of the two variables, x and y,. The variables x, y and z are assumed to be of the same type, say int.. Then we compares the value of variable y with that of variable x.

}The operators present in prefix and postfix are

  • prefix increment operator denoted by ++
  • prefix decrement operator denoted by --
  • postfix increment operator
  • postfix decrement operator

When a division is performed the remainder of the operation is given by modulus operator. The modulus operator is denoted in c by symbol %. Say for instance we have two integer values x and y and then the operation x % y called as x modulus y gives the result as (x- (x / y) * y).  Say if x=18 and y =5 the x % y gives value as (18- (18 / 5) * 5) which gives (18-15) which results in 3 in other words the remainder of the division operation.

The ++ operator is called the increment operator. When the operator is placed before the variable (++var), the variable is incremented by 1 before it is used in the expression. When the operator is placed after the variable (var++), the expression is evaluated, and then the variable is incremented by 1.
