Can we define a function inside another function in C ?

NO, We can’t.

 

Function inside a function (Nested functions) is not allowed in C.

For example : This is not allowed.

void funA()
{
—–
—–
void funB()
{
 ——
 ——
 }
——
}


NOTE : When we are working with the GCC, nesting of functions (function inside a function) is supported with the help of a language extension (provided by the GCC). But, defining a function inside another function is not a part of the standard C language and most of the complier prompt an error if we try to do so.

So, in short , answer is NO, we can’t define a function inside another function.
