Is File handling topic in c programming is important for gate .…


I don’t think so.

GATE generally focuses on:

Arrays and pointers and string mix concept. 2D Array and memory based question. Recursion. Scoping. Function call of two functions, the concept of call by value and reference….

Sometimes they ask structure concept with Linked List. Array Row Major and Column Major...

Thank you very much

I think i skip this topic

Sir,But this

Question in os file system but i asked "file handling in c" Like FILE pointer and file methods like that stuff. 


And last doubt is "can i skip this topic or not" For gate perspective.

oh. I misinterpreted.

in C, file handling is not required.
Thank you sir

Now my confusion is clear.
