In Tower of Hanoi we have to move all the disc from (assumes you have 3 tower namely A, B, C) tower A to tower C, in the same order as the disc are on tower A, with the help of tower B.

#include <stdio.h>

void swap_towers(int, char, char, char);  //prototype for my recursive function.

int main()
    int num_disk;

    printf("Enter the number of disks :  ");
    scanf("%d", &num_disk);

    printf("Movement of disks (i.e form Tower A to Tower B) involved in the Tower of Hanoi are :\n");

    swap_towers(num_disk, 'A', 'C', 'B');

    return 0;

void swap_towers(int num, char from_tower, char to_tower, char ex_tower)
    if (num == 1) // Condition to stop the recursion.
        printf("\nMove disk 1 from Tower %c to Tower %c", from_tower, to_tower);

    swap_towers(num - 1,  from_tower, ex_tower, to_tower);

    printf("\nMove disk %d from Tower %c to Tower %c", num, from_tower, to_tower);

    swap_towers(num - 1, ex_tower, to_tower, from_tower);
