Linear Search in C

Linear Search in C

Here you will know about Linear Search algorithm and example code of Linear Search in C programming by using Array, functions, pointers, and recursion.

What is Linear Search in C?

Linear search in C is a search algorithm that sequentially checks each element of an array or list until a matching element is found or the end of the list is reached. Linear search is also known as sequentially search or naive search. It is a simple but inefficient search algorithm, as it requires a number of steps proportional to the size of the list.
