This C Program Converts the given Decimal to Octal. Octal is a numbering system that uses eight digits, 0 to 7, arranged in a series of columns to represent all numerical quantities. Each column or place value has a weighted value of 1, 8, 64, 512, and so on ranging from right to left. Decimal is a term that describes the base-10 number system commonly used by lay people in the developed world.
Here is source code of the C program to Convert Decimal to Octal. The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.
* C program to Convert Decimal to Octal
long decimalnum, remainder, quotient;
int octalNumber, i = 1, j;
printf("Enter the decimal number: ");
quotient = decimalnum;
while (quotient != 0)
octalNumber[i++] = quotient % 8;
quotient = quotient / 8;
printf("Equivalent octal value of decimal no %d: ", decimalnum);
for (j = i - 1; j > 0; j--)
Output: $ cc pgm11.c $ a.out Enter the decimal number: 68 Equivalent octal value of decimal no 68: 104
