How to access or modify the const variable in c ?




Answer Posted / saneesh a t

Actually the keyword const is not for the programmer who work with the normal
general purpose computer. By declaring a variable as const, the compailar shows
warning/error to the modification to the variable. At runtime you can modify the memory location
using any technique, or an external hacking program can change the value of the variable.
Suppose your program is compiled to run with a microcontroller with flash or EEPROM or such
memory. Now your variable with const qualifier will be stored in the FLASH of EEPROM memory,
which cann't be modified, and the technique is used to save the RAM space which is too small in
size for a micro controller. In this case too, a FLASH/EEPROM write can chage the value of the
const varriable.

The purpose of this exercise is to benchmark file writing and reading speed. This exercise is divided into two parts. a). Write a file character by character such that the total file size becomes approximately >10K. After writing close the file handler, open a new stream and read the file character by character. Record both times. Execute this exercise at least 4 times b). Create a buffer capable of storing 100 characters. Now after generating the characters, first store them in the buffer. Once the buffer is filled up, store all the elements in the file. Repeat the process until the total file size becomes approximately >10K.While reading read a while line, store it in buffer and once buffer gets filled up, display the whole buffer. Repeat the exercise at least 4 times with different size of buffer (50, 100, 150 …). Records the times. c). Do an analysis of the differences in times and submit it in class.
