c program: how can it be identified when the control reaches eof .


this is the code

Code:
#include<stdio.h>
main(){
int c,count=0;
if((c=getchar())=!EOF)
printf("process");

printf("end");

}
In what case will it print end .
if we press ctrl+d/ ctrl+c ,it should first print "end"
Please explain me in which case my control will be in else condition.

Well, your code has no loop, so you'll always fall though to the "end."
Perhaps you meant
Code:
$ cat temp.c
#include<stdio.h>
main(){
  int c,count=0;
  while ((c=getchar()) != EOF)
    printf("process c=\"%c\"\n",c);

  printf("end\n");

}
$ echo -n abcd | ./temp 
process c="a"
process c="b"
process c="c"
process c="d"
end
Note: ^C will terminate the execution of the whole program, not end the input. ^D is what you want.
Note2: The getchar function will read the '\n' at the end of each input line, hence the -n option to the echo command in the sample output, above.
