How can I print a quotation mark in C?


In an interview I was asked

Print a quotation mark using the printf() function

I was overwhelmed. Even in their office there was a computer and they told me to try it. I tried like this:

void main()
{
    printf("Printing quotation mark " ");
}

but as I suspected it doesn't compile. When the compiler gets the first " it thinks it is the end of string, which is not. So how can I achieve this?


Answers:


Try this:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
  printf("Printing quotation mark \" ");
}
