C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z

How to write a C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z using For Loop and While Loop.

C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z using For Loop

This program will print alphabets from a to z using For Loop. Here, For Loop will make sure that the character (ch) is between a and z.

/* C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z */

#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
  	char ch;

	printf("\n List of Alphabets from a to z are : \n");  
  	for(ch = 'a'; ch <= 'z'; ch++)
  	{
  		printf(" %c\t", ch);	
	}
  
  	return 0;
}

C Program to display Alphabets from a to z using ASCII Codes

In this program, we are using the ASCII codes to print alphabets from a to z. I suggest you refer to the ASCII Table to understand the ASCII values of each character in C Programming.

From the below code snippet you can see, a = 97 and z = 122

/* C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z */

#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
  	int i;

	printf("\n List of Alphabets from a to z are : \n");  
  	for(i = 97; i <= 122; i++)
  	{
  		printf(" %c\t", i);	
	}
  
  	return 0;
}
 List of Alphabets from a to z are : 
 a	 b	 c	 d	 e	 f	 g	 h	 i	 j	 k	 l	 m	 n	 o	 p	 q	 r	 s	 t	 u	 v	 w	 x	 y	 z

Program to Print Alphabets from a to z using While Loop

This program for alphabets is the same as above. We just replaced the For Loop with While Loop.

/* C Program to Print Alphabets from a to z using While Loop */

#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
  	char ch = 'a';

	printf("\n List of Alphabets from a to z are : \n");  
  	while(ch <= 'z')
  	{
  		printf(" %c\t", ch);
		  ch++;	
	}
  
  	return 0;
}
 List of Alphabets from a to z are : 
 a	 b	 c	 d	 e	 f	 g	 h	 i	 j	 k	 l	 m	 n	 o	 p	 q	 r	 s	 t	 u	 v	 w	 x	 y	 z	

C Program to display Alphabets in a Given Range

This program allows the user to enter the starting alphabet. Next, the program will print the list of all alphabets between Starting_Char and z.

/* C Program to Print Alphabets within a Range */

#include <stdio.h>
 
int main()
{
  	char ch, Starting_Char;
  
  	printf("\n Please Enter the Starting Alphabet : ");
  	scanf("%c", &Starting_Char);

	printf("\n List of Alphabets from %c to z are : \n", Starting_Char);  
  	for(ch = Starting_Char; ch <= 'z'; ch++)
  	{
  		printf(" %c\t", ch);	
	}
  
  	return 0;
}
 Please Enter the Starting Alphabet : g

 List of Alphabets from g to z are : 
 g	 h	 i	 j	 k	 l	 m	 n	 o	 p	 q	 r	 s	 t	 u	 v	 w	 x	 y	 z
