This document contains assignments to be completed as part of the hands on for the subject Programming & Testing. Few of the assignments can be re-used in P&T project.

• • • • • • Coding Standards need to be followed, wherever necessary. Header, footer and proper documentation are necessary for all programs implemented. These assignments contain Self exercises, debugging exercises, problem solving, code review and developing test case exercises Solving these exercises methodically would provide confidence to the learner to attempt the module and online exams The estimated time would help a learner to solve problems given a deadline The assignments need to be completed in sequence on day basis as instructed by the facilitators and submitted appropriately

Problem Description: • • • Create a structure called with three short int members namely day. Display the telephone number • • • 6.the count of common characters. The requirements are as follows: Declare a character array to hold a 7-digit telephone number • • Accept the telephone number as a string. month and year Create an instance of this structure called as dateOfBirth Display the date of Birth in the formal day-mon-year (Example: If the date of birth is 05-06-1991 then the display should be 05-Jun-1991) 7. Declare VALID and INVALID using #define The valid months are between 1 and 12 The valid days ranges between 1 to 31 Every 4th year is a leap year and every 400th year is also a leap year. (Example : For the above telephone number the function should return next telephone number in the sequence as 1001002) Use ‘atoi’ function to convert the given string to an integer. Because it is also divisible by 100 and not divisible by 400) Return the error code to function ‘main’ Display the message “Valid Date” or “Invalid Date” depending on the error code . The first four digits is the department code and the last three digits is the telephone number. Creating structures” create the structure to store date of birth Write a function that accepts instance of date of birth as an argument The function should validate the date and return the VALID or INVALID code. (The function ‘atoi’ accepts a character array and returns the integer equivalent if the string contains only digits) Increment the telephone number and return it to the function ‘main’. Write a program to automatically generate the telephone numbers. Year 1900 is not a leap year even though it is divisible by 4. Write a program to Validate the date of birth of a person. It should be made case insensitive) 5. (Example: If the strings were “Infosys” and “Microsoft” then the count will be 4. (Example: year 2000 is a leap year not only because it is divisible by 4 but it is also divisible by 400. Write a program to create a structure to store the date of birth of a person. (Example: If the telephone number is “1001001” then “1001” is the department code and “001” is the telephone number) Write a function called as ‘fnGenerateTelNumber’ that accepts the telephone number string as an argument and returns the next telephone number in the sequence. Problem Description: • • • • • • • • • As described in “Assignment-6.

Write a program to arrange the telephone extension numbers of ‘N’ employees in the ascending order using insertion sort. batting average Using cricket. declare an array player with 50 elements and write a program to read the information about all the 50 players and print a team-wise list containing names of players with their batting average. 11. 9. 10. Write a function fnDay_Name that receives a number n and returns a pointer to a character string containing the name of the corresponding day. It should display the corrected string with no blank spaces. Write a program to arrange the department codes of ‘N’ departments in descending order using selection sort. The day names should be kept in a static table of character strings local to the function. Marks in physics >= 50 c. Note : Use built in functions wherever possible. starting with the nth character. Write a program that receives a character string and a character as argument. Using pointers. Assume the total number of applications to process is “n”. Write a program to search for an employee id in an array containing ‘N’ employee Ids using binary search.
