What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / v venkatesh

The differences between a static member function and non-
static member functions are as follows.

A static member function can access only static member
data, static member functions and data and functions
outside the class. A non-static member function can access
all of the above including the static data member.

A static member function can be called, even when a class
is not instantiated, a non-static member function can be
called only after instantiating the class as an object.

A static member function cannot be declared virtual,
whereas a non-static member functions can be declared as
virtual

A static member function cannot have access to the 'this'
pointer of the class.
The static member functions are not used very frequently in
programs. But nevertheless, they become useful whenever we
need to have functions which are accessible even when the
class is not instantiated.

Answer / dee

they are not associated with "this" pointer since it can be
called without object.they can acees only static varibales.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / khan

Static member functions give internal linkage. The function
declared as static is not visible outside the file in which
it is declared. It is not associated with "this" pointer and
it can be invoked using class name instead of depending on
individual object. It can access only static members of the
class.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / manu

Static member functions have external linkage. These
functions do not have this pointers. As a result,

They cannot access nonstatic class member data using
the member-selection operators (. or –>).

They cannot be declared as virtual.

They cannot have the same name as a nonstatic function
that has the same argument types.

They are useful as they donot have access to this pointer
and so they can be called even though the class is not
instantiated.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / anh vu

A static function member can be used to provide utility
functions to a class. For example, with a class representing
calendar dates, a function that tells whether a given year
is a leap year might best be represented as a static
function (DateTime.IsLeapYear). The function is related to
the operation of the class but doesn't operate on particular
object instances (actual calendar dates) of the class.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / sumanta pattanayak

static function is used to call static variable or class
variable...rather than that without creating the class
object we can access the static function by
classname.staticfunctionname.....THIS cannot be used inside
static function.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / reejusri

Static function is basically used in creating factory
objects.
You can make your constructor private and expose static
function. And user can use the static methods to create the
object of that class.
Using NONSHARABLE_CLASS you can restrict the usage of
static functions/method also.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / amit

Amit Srivastava:
What i think , static functions are used with the conditions
where there is no need to occupy RAM memory unnecessarily.
As ,other than Static functions are attached with the object
and ready to use memory space as and when a object of that
class is instantiated.But Static functions are having only
one address as they are independent of Objects.

What is the use of static functions?..

Answer / sanish joseph

If we r using Static functions all the objects will get only
a single copy of dat function,means der wil b only one copy
of dat function.
static functions will contain only static variables.

Answer / priya

static word meaning it cannot be changed.so when we use
static in the function it cannot be changed

Board Coloring Problem Description In this problem you are given a board in which some of the elements are placed as shown in diagram below. Each element represents a color. Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. Find out the minimum number of colors that should be used to fill the blank spaces in the board, so that the above condition is met. Color representation is -: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7……………………. There is sample board: For Example: Given Board : Matrix representation of board is : [ _ 1 _ _ ] [ 2 _ _ _ ] [ _ _ 2 _ ] [ 2 _ _ _ ] here blank space is represented by '_' . Minimum colors to fill this board (given in the picture)is 4. Instruction to work with Open PBT Client: Specify the work directory path in the 'Work directory Path' field. The path should correspond to your solution Work directory. Download the support files by clicking the Get Dev Files. You will find the problem directories containing: problem.h file problem.c file in your project directory. Code the solution in.c file inside the problem directory All required files will be downloaded to your work directory. Creating additional files is strongly discouraged. Step 1: In your Solution File: Implement your logic in function int color(char board[4][4]) char board[4][4]board is 2 dimensional matrix of order M X M where M = 4. You can create more functions if required, but those functions should be in the same file. Step 2: In your solution keep in mind the following constraints. In this problem you have to write a program that finds the minimum number of colors needed to fill a board in which some of the elements are placed in advance. Function color() will take 2 dimension board as a input. Function color() returns the minimum number of colors that could fill the board meeting the given condition. Board is a 2 dimensional of M X M where M = 4 else return 0 Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. The Prototype of the function is int color(char board[4][4]) This function takes following arguments. board is 2 dimensional matrix of order M X M where M = 4. This function returns minimum no of color by which board can be filled. The constraints are: Board is a 2 dimensional of M X M where M = 4 else return 0 Fill the other elements in the board, such that none of the adjacent elements (vertically, horizontally and diagonally) should be of the same color. Example 1 Input { 2 0 _ 1 } { _ 1 _ _ } { _ 2 _ 0 } { _ _ _ 1 } Output 5 Explanation: We need a minimum 5 different colors to complete the board. Example 2 Input { 2 0 _ 1 3} { _ 1 _ _ 2} { _ 2 _ 0 1} { _ _ _ 1 2} { _ _ _ _ 0} Output 0 Explanation: Size of the board is greater than 4X4. Example 3 Input { _ 0 } { 1 _ } Output 0 Explanation: Size of the board is less than 4X4. For C solutions Header File : boardcoloring.h Function Name : int color(char board1[4][4]) File Name : boardcoloring.c For C++ solutions Header File : boardcoloring.h Class Name : BoardColoring Function Name : int color(char board1[4][4]) File Name : boardcoloring.c
