C Keywords 
Keywords are the words whose meaning has already been explained to the C compiler (or 
in a broad sense to the computer). The keywords cannot be used as variable names
because if we do so we are trying to assign a new meaning to the keyword, which is not
allowed by the computer. Some C compilers allow you to construct variable names that
exactly resemble the keywords. However, it would be safer not to mix up the variable
names and the keywords. The keywords are also called ‘Reserved words’. 

There are only 32 keywords available in C. Figure gives a list of these keywords for your ready reference. A detailed discussion of each of these keywords would be taken up in later chapters wherever their use is relevant
