C Keywords

Basic Program

Keywords are those words which tells the compiler what to do . In C Programming, keywords are otherwise said to be reserved words.

Keywords in C

Keywords Rules

  • Keywords are always in lowercase letters.
  • Keywords cannot be changed by a programmer.
  • Keywords cannot be used as variable name, function name, array name by a programmer.

Keywords Bad Practices

Keywords in Uppercase letters can be used as identifiers but considers as a poor programming practice.

Program For Verification

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
int BREAK = 1;
printf("The value of BREAK = %d ",BREAK);
return 0;
  • The value of BREAK = 1


Here we used BREAK as an identifier, but the compiler haven't through any error instead it replied with an output.

List Of All Keywords

There are 32 keywords defined in C Programming.

auto extern sizeof
break float static
case for struct
char goto switch
const if typedef
continue int union
default long unsigned
do register void
double return volatile
else short while
enum signed -

Most frequently Keywords

Here we extract the keywords as per usage to make a clarity view.

Keywords Datatypes

char long union
double short unsigned
float signed void
int struct -

Keywords Conditioning Looping

case else switch
default for while
do if -
