*********************************************************************** 1] What do the functions atoi(), atoa() and gcvt() do? Show how u use them in a program. would yo

2] Does there exist any other function which can be used to convert an integer or a float to a string? If yes, show how you would use it. 3] es? How would you use qsort() function to sort an array of structur

4] How would you use qsort() function to sort the names stored in an array of pointers to strings? 5] How would you use bsearch() function to search a name stored in an array of pointers to strings? 6] 7] 8] 9] 10] 11] s? 12] 13] How would you use the function sin(), pow(), sqrt()? How would you use the function memcpy()? How would you use the function memset()? How would you use the function memmove()? How would you use the functions fseek(), fread(), fwrite() and ftell()? How would you obtain the current time and difference between two time

How would you use the function randomize() and random()? Would the following program always output 'Bangalore'? main() { char str1[] = "Bangalore - 440010"; char str2[10]; strncpy(str2,str1,8); printf("\n %s",str2); }

{24.dd[i].m.dd[i].random() 19] What's the difference between the functions .14] Can you shorten this code? main() { char str1[] = "Bangalore . clrscr (). inti.440010". printf("%s". str2[0] = '\0'.str1. {16.dd[i].y. for(i=0. main() { struct date dd[]={ {17.const void*). } c 18] How should we sort a linked list? rand().w. } 15] How would you implement a substr() function that extracts a g from a given string? substrin 16] Given a sentence containing words separated by spaces how would you construct an array of pointers to strings containing addresses of eac h word in the sentance? 17] Write the comparison function qs_compare()for the following ode struct date { int d.w.8.m. qsort(dd.srand() and randomise()? .i<4.62}. qs_compare(const void*.qs_compare).2. {17. strncat(str2.8).5.11.11.str2).78}. }.y). {19.94} }.76}. char str2[10].12.i++) printf("\n%d%d%d".62}. w=sizeof(struct date).

This function also has the ability to format the numbers as they are converted to str ings. int i.20] What's the difference between the funtion memmove() and memcpy()? 21] How would you print a string on the printer? 22] Can you use the funtion fprintf()to display the output on the screen? *********************************************************************** ********************** ANSWERS *********************** *********************************************************************** 1] atoi() converts a string to an integer.141672. # include"stdlib. gcvt() converts a floating-point number to a string. printf("\n %d".
