Assignment #1
Veterinarian Clinic System

Worth: 20% of final grade
Note: the project will contain only one source code file which is the main tester “a1ms1.c”.
Milestone – 1
Milestone-1 includes a unit tester (a1ms1.c). A unit tester is a program which invokes your functions,
passing them known parameter values. It then compares the results returned by your functions with the
correct results to determine if your functions are working correctly. The tester should be used to confirm
your solution meets the specifications for each “helper” function. The helper functions should be
thoroughly tested and fail-proof (100% reliable) as they will be used throughout your assignment
milestones.

Development Suggestions
You will be developing several functions for this milestone. The unit tester in the file “a1ms1.c” assumes
these functions have been created and, until they exist, the program will not compile.
Strategy – 1
You can comment out the lines of code in the “a1ms1.c” file where you have not yet created and defined
the referenced function. You can locate these lines in the function definitions (after the main function) and
for every test function, locate the line that calls the function you have not yet developed and simply
comment the line out until you are ready to test it.
Strategy – 2
You can create “empty function shells” to satisfy the existence of the functions but give them no logic until
you are ready to program them. These empty functions are often called stubs.
Review the specifications below and identify every function you need to develop. Create the necessary
function prototypes (placed in the .h header file) and create the matching function definitions (placed in the
.c source file), only with empty code blocks (don’t code anything yet). In cases where the function MUST
return a value, hardcode (temporarily until you code the function later) a return value so your application
can compile.
Specifications
Milestone-1 will establish the function “helpers” we will draw from as needed throughout the three
milestones. These functions will handle routines that are commonly performed (greatly reduces code
redundancy) and provide assurance they accomplish what is expected without fail (must be reliable).
Core Module
1. Create a module called “core”. To do this, you will need to create two files: “core.h” and “core.c” and
add them to the Visual Studio project.
2. The header file (.h) will contain the function prototypes, while the source file (.c) will contain the
function definitions (the logic and how each function works).
• Copy and paste the commented section provided for you in the a1ms1.c file (top portion) to all files
you create
• Fill in the information accordingly
3. The “core.c” file will require the usual standard input output system library as well as the new user
library “core.h”, so be sure to include these.
4. Review the “a1ms1.c” tester file and examine each defined tester function (after the main function).
Each tester function is designed to test a specific helper function.
5. Two (2) functions are provided for you. Here are the function prototypes you must copy and place into
the “core.h” header file:
// Clear the standard input buffer
void clearInputBuffer(void);
SDDS School of Software Design and Data Science Page | 4
SDDS Fall – 2023 School of Software Design and Data Science
// Wait for user to input the “enter” key to continue
void suspend(void);
Functions
The source code file “core.c” must contain the function definitions (copy and place the function
definitions below in the “core.c” file):
// As demonstrated in the course notes:
// https://intro2c.sdds.ca/D-Modularity/input-functions#clearing-the-buffer
// Clear the standard input buffer
void clearInputBuffer(void)
{
// Discard all remaining char’s from the standard input buffer:
while (getchar() != ‘\n’)
{
; // do nothing!
}
}
// Wait for user to input the “enter” key to continue
void suspend(void)
{
printf(“<ENTER> to continue…”);
clearInputBuffer();
putchar(‘\n’);
}
6. Each function briefly described below will require a function prototype to be placed in the “core.h” file,
and their respective function definitions in the “core.c” file.
The function identifiers (names) are provided for you however you are responsible for constructing the
full function prototype and definitions based on the descriptions below (there are six (6) functions in
total):
• Function: inputInt
This function must:
o return an integer value and receives no arguments.
o get a valid integer from the keyboard.
o display an error message if an invalid value is entered (review the sample output for the
appropriate error message)
o guarantee an integer value is entered and returned.
o Hint: You can use scanf to read an integer and a character (“%d%c”) in one call and then
assess if the second value is a newline character. If the second character is a newline (the
result of an <ENTER> key press), scanf read the first value successfully as an integer.
SDDS School of Software Design and Data Science Page | 5
SDDS Fall – 2023 School of Software Design and Data Science
o If the second value (character) is not a newline, the value entered was not an integer or
included additional non-integer characters. If any invalid entry occurs, your function should
call the clearInputBuffer function, followed by displaying an error message and continue to
prompt for a valid integer. Review the flowchart below that describes this process.

• Function: inputIntPositive
This function must:
o return an integer value and receives no arguments.
o perform the same operations as inputInt but validates the value entered is greater than 0.
o display an error message if the value is a zero or less (review the sample output for the
appropriate error message).
o continue to prompt for a value until a value is greater than 0.
o guarantee a positive integer value is entered and returned.
• Function: inputIntRange
This function must:
o return an integer value and receives two arguments:
▪ First argument represents the lower-bound of the permitted range.
▪ Second argument represents the upper-bound of the permitted range.
Note:
▪ A range is a set of numbers that includes the upper and lower limits (bounds)
▪ You must provide meaningful parameter identifiers (names)
o performs the same operations as inputInt but validates the value entered is between the two
arguments received by the function (inclusive).
o display an error message if the value is outside the permitted range (review the sample
output for the appropriate error message).
o continue to prompt for a value until a value is between the permitted range (inclusive)
o guarantee an integer value is entered within the range (inclusive) and returned.
• Function: inputCharOption
This function must:
o return a single character value and receives one argument:
▪ an unmodifiable C string array representing a list of valid characters.
Note: You must provide a meaningful parameter identifier (name)
o get a single character value from the keyboard.
o validate the entered character matches any of the characters in the received C string
argument.
Reminder: A C string will have a null terminator character marking the end of the array
o display an error message if the entered character value is not in the list of valid characters
(review the sample output for the appropriate error message)
Note: Include in the error message the C string permitted characters
o Continue to prompt for a single character value until a valid character is entered.
o Guarantee a single character value is entered within the list of valid characters (as defined by
the C string argument received) and returned.

• Function: inputCString
The purpose of this function is to obtain user input for a C string value with a length (number of
characters) in the character range specified by the 2nd and 3rd arguments received (inclusive).
This function:
o must receive three (3) arguments and therefore needs three (3) parameters:
▪ 1st parameter is a character pointer representing a C string
Note: Assumes the argument has been sized to accommodate at least the upperbound limit specified in the 3rd argument received
▪ 2nd parameter represents an integral value of the minimum number of characters the
user-entered value must be.
▪ 3rd parameter represents an integral value of the maximum number of characters the
user-entered value can be.
o does not return a value, but does return a C string via the 1st argument parameter pointer.
o must validate the entered number of characters is within the specified range. If not, display
an error message (review the sample output for the appropriate error message).
Note: If the 2nd and 3rd arguments are the same value, this means the C string entered must
be a specific length.
o must continue to prompt for a C string value until a valid length is entered.
o guarantee’s a C string value is entered containing the number of characters within the range
specified by the 2nd and 3rd arguments (and return via the 1st argument pointer).
[IMPORTANT]
You are NOT to use any of the string library functions; you must manually determine the entered C
string length using a conventional iteration construct.
• Function: displayFormattedPhone
The purpose of this function is to display an array of 10-character digits as a formatted phone
number.
This function:
o must receive one (1) argument and therefore requires one (1) parameter:
▪ 1st parameter is an unmodifiable character pointer representing a C string..
o does not return a value..
o should not assume a valid C string array, and therefore, should carefully validate the
argument char array to determine:
▪ it is exactly 10 characters long
▪ only contains digits (0-9)
o should display “(___)___-____” when the argument C string char array is not a 10-character
all digit value.
SDDS School of Software Design and Data Science Page | 8
SDDS Fall – 2023 School of Software Design and Data Science
o should display the phone number in the following format when it is a valid C string phone
number: “(###)###-####” (where each # is the character digit from the C string argument
char array).
o NOTE: Do not add a newline character at the beginning or end of the displayed value.
