C Programming - Library Functions - Discussion


Is standard library a part of C language?

[A]. Yes
[B]. No

Answer: Option B


The C standard library consists of a set of sections of the ISO C standard which describe a collection of header files and library routines used to implement common operations, such as input/output and string handling, in the C programming language. The C standard library is an interface standard described by a document; it is not an actual library of software routines available for linkage to C programs.

If standard Library is not a part of C. Then why "stdlib.h" is included in some cases.
