Software engineering is driven by many factors-competition, hardware and software standards, hardware prices-that are changing at an unparalleled rate. It is simply unrealistic to hope that assumptions made during product specification will still hold true during coding. The process must be somewhat flexible to succeed. 2 Stages of Software Production 11 Product Specification Architectural Design Project Planning Detailed Design Coding Debugging Testing Maintenance Figure 2-1: Stages of Software Development This is one reason why it makes sense to concentrate on the code construction stages-detailed design, coding, and debugging.

A function usually performs an operation that is more com- 3: C Essentials 36 plex than any of the operations built into the C language. At the same time, a function should not be so complex that it is difficult to understand. Typically, programs are developed with layers of functions. The lower-level functions perform the simplest operations, and higher-level functions are created by combining lower-level functions. The following, for instance, is a low-level function that calculates the square of a number.

For example, a function that computes x to the y power would take two arguments, separated by a comma (the spaces between the parentheses and the arguments are optional): int power ( int x, int y ) The function body contains all of the executable statements. This is where calculations are actually performed. The function body must begin with a left brace and end with a right brace. 38 3: C Essentials function type '-------1 function name argument type , . . -- - - variable declaration num • num; return answer; ) Cstatements Figure 3-4: Anatomy of the squareO function.
