The top command is one of the values, which could be a sequence of characters, that we should be returning for Project 1 2022. If we were to create a function to return this value, what would the function declaration look like? Would it be 'char my_function()' or 'const char *'to return a sequence of characters for the top command of Project 1?
Oh, I've managed to return the string by declaring a pointer for the value of variable 'command': char *command = "m". Cheers for your time.
