Union in c

A "union declaration" specifies a set of variable values and, optionally, a tag naming the union. The variable values are called "members" of the union and can have different types. Unions are similar to "variant records" in other languages. 


union sign   /* A definition and a declaration */


int svar;

char 1[20];

} number;

union time

int i;

char a;



int main() 

my.i=6;                                  ../using union variable 



Note:- The size of the structure is sum of the size of each member in the struchture.but size of the union is size

of Largest member in the union because union members are overlaps on each other in memory.

If we declare two structure variables,Both variables are stored in different location

but union stored in same location.
