Parts of a Function in C

Previously, we had studied What are Functions and their Types. Today we will know the parts of a function.

There are 3 parts in a function.
1. Function Declaration
2. Function Calling
3. Function Definition

Function Declaration

Function declaration includes the return type, name and the argument list of the function. Declaration of the function is done above main() function. Function  declaration is also called function prototype.

Function Calling

It is the statement or part where the function is called.

Syntax:  function_name(argument list to pass);
