Local Variable in C1 min read

A variable that is declared within the body of the function or block is called a local variable. This variable is used only within that block or function where it was created, other classes cannot access it. And is destroyed after exiting the block.

  • Local variables are uninitialized by default and contain garbage values.
  • The lifetime of a local variable is only within the function or block. And is destroyed after exiting the block.
  • A local variable is accessed using block scope access.
