In this tutorial, we are going to write a C Program to find the maximum number in an array using a pointer in C Programming with practical program code and step-by-step full complete explanation.

C Program program to find the maximum number in an array using pointer


C Program to find the maximum number in an array using pointer

 
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>

void main()
{
	int max,i,*a[5];

	clrscr();

	printf("Enter element for the array: ");
	for(i=0;i<5;i++)
	{
		scanf("%d",&*a[i]);
		max = *a[0];
	}
	for(i=1;i<5;i++)
	{
		if(max<*a[i])
		{
			max=*a[i];
		}
	}

	printf("Maximum number=%d",max);

	getch();
}


Output

 
Enter elements for array: 5
4
7
1
2
Maximum number = 7
