A language L allows declaration of arrays whose sizes are not known during compilation. It is required to make efficient use of memory. Which of the following is true?
(A) A compiler using static memory allocation can be written for L
(B) A compiler cannot be written for L, an interpreter must be used
(C) A compiler using dynamic memory allocation can be written for L
(D) None of the above
Explanation: If a language L allows declaration of arrays whose sizes are not known during compilation time. It is required to use efficient use of memory.
So a compiler using dynamic memory allocation can be written for L.
