Hi all, I am working on a class project to make a simple shell program. I am googleing examples, and I came across this one on linuxgazette char c = ''; printf("n[MY_SHELL ] "); while(c != EOF) { c = getchar(); if(c == 'n') printf("[MY_SHELL ] "); } printf("n"); return 0; I understand that they are just initializing the char to ensure that it is not EOF - but what does stand for? Thanks in advance, crabpot

Hello Crabpot8.

‘\0′ = NULL, which has an integer value of 0.

This null character is commonly used as a string terminator in C.
