- I'm going to create exercise blorf.c myself,…so you can compare what you've come up with…with what I did.…Be aware that your code…may not match up exactly with mine.…I'll create a new empty file in Code::Blocks,…and type in a basic skeleton.…You see as I type, the text isn't color-coded.…You have to save the file…before the editor recognizes how to color the text.…I'll save here, and then go back…and rewrite the specific printf function.…And there's the color.…
So at line 5, I'm going to type in the printf function.…"Hello", and a new line," My name is",…and escape the double quote, "Blorf", period.…Escape the double quote.…Type a semicolon to make it a statement.…Add a blank line for readability.…Save, build, and run.…There's the output as requested.…A single printf function that output two lines of text.…
And if you thought to add another new line…at the end of the string, you get bonus points.…Otherwise the output looks kind of scrunchy.…By the way, if you don't want to use double quotes,…you can use single quotes instead.…
