This is a C Program to find sum of numbers given in command line arguments recursively.

This C Program find sum of numbers given in command line arguments recursively.

This C Program Prints the sum of numbers given in command line arguments.

Here is source code of the C Program to find sum of numbers given in command line arguments recursively. The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.

/* * C Program to Find Sum of Numbers given in Command Line Arguments * Recursively */ #include <stdio.h> int count, s = 0; void sum(int *, int *); void main(int argc, char *argv[]) { int i, ar[argc]; count = argc; for (i = 1; i < argc; i++) { ar[i - 1] = atoi(argv[i]); } sum(ar, ar + 1); printf("%d", s); } /* computes sum of two numbers recursively */ void sum(int *a, int * b) { if (count == 1) return; s = s + *a + *b; count -= 2; sum(a + 2, b + 2); }

In this C Program, the sum() function is used to compute the sum of two numbers recursively. If condition statement is used to check the value of ‘count’ variable is equal to 1.

If the condition is true, then we can’t compute the summation of two numbers hence return the value. Otherwise, if the condition is false, then compute the summation of the value of ‘s’ variable with the pointer variables ‘a’ and ‘b’, and decrement the value of ‘count’ variable by 2.

$ cc arg4.c $ a.out 1 2 3 4 sum is 10
