The tower of hanoi is a mathematical puzzle. It consists of three rods, and a number of disks of different sizes which can slide onto any rod. The puzzle starts with the disks in a neat stack in ascending order of size on one rod, the smallest at the top. We have to obtain the same stack on the third rod.

Here is the source code of the **C program** for solving towers of hanoi. The C Program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below :

/* * C program for Tower of Hanoi using Recursion */ #include <stdio.h> void towers(int, char, char, char); int main() { int num; printf("Enter the number of disks : "); scanf("%d", &num); printf("The sequence of moves involved in the Tower of Hanoi are :\n"); towers(num, 'A', 'C', 'B'); return 0; } void towers(int num, char frompeg, char topeg, char auxpeg) { if (num == 1) { printf("\n Move disk 1 from peg %c to peg %c", frompeg, topeg); return; } towers(num - 1, frompeg, auxpeg, topeg); printf("\n Move disk %d from peg %c to peg %c", num, frompeg, topeg); towers(num - 1, auxpeg, topeg, frompeg); }

OUTPUT :

Enter the number of disks : 3 The sequence of moves involved in the Tower of Hanoi are : Move disk 1 from peg A to peg C Move disk 2 from peg A to peg B Move disk 1 from peg C to peg B Move disk 3 from peg A to peg C Move disk 1 from peg B to peg A Move disk 2 from peg B to peg C Move disk 1 from peg A to peg C
