Is it possible to use assembly(ALP) code with in the C program?,if Yes ,give me the proceduer to do the same And whether there will be any problem with the exicution time,exicution time will be same as the ALP exicution time or it will be greater than that?

Placing inline assembler in your C program is non-standard and will vary depending on the C compiler you are using.

For Visual C++ the syntax is something like
int asmFunc() {
   /* Inline assembler */
  __asm {
                         MOV EAX,10h  
   return 0;

or alternatively

  __asm                        MOV EAX,10h

If you specify the C compiler you are usiing I can point you to further reference information.

Only that part of the code, which is written in assembly will be faster. The other parts will take normal speed.

In Turbo C, you use

    // ALP code


asm statement1;
asm statement2;

asm and the following { should be on the same line, or else the Turbo C compiler gives error ! This is the only place where whitespaces are not ignored inside C code.

etc... and as DeanHorak said, VC++ uses __asm instead of asm. So it is highly compiler dependent and achitecture dependent. ie., you may not be able to run the same code on another Operatin System.

So use it when you really want to :)
