Linear Search In C Programming

Introduction
  • In this blog, I am going to explain how to find the linear search in C programming.
  • It is used to find whether the given number is present in an array or not. If it has means then it can find the location of an array. 
Software Requirements
  • Turbo C++ or C. 
Programming
  1. #include < stdio.h >   
  2. int main()   
  3. {  
  4.     int array[100], search, c, n;  
  5.     printf("Enter the number of elements in array\n");  
  6.     scanf("%d", & n);  
  7.     printf("Enter %d integer(s)\n", n);  
  8.     for (c = 0; c < n; c++) scanf("%d", & array[c]);  
  9.     printf("Enter the number to search\n");  
  10.     scanf("%d", & search);  
  11.     for (c = 0; c < n; c++) {  
  12.         if (array[c] == search) {  
  13.             printf("%d is present at location %d.\n", search, c + 1);  
  14.             break;  
  15.         }  
  16.     }  
  17.     if (c == n) printf("%d is not present in array.\n", search);  
  18.     return 0;  
  19. }  
Explanation
  • It is very simple programming and the linear search is always known as Sequential search. With the help of programming, the linear search of an array can be found.
