Read the first number; assume that it is both the largest and the
smallest. That is, copy its value to both variables. Read
additional values in a loop; for every number:
* If it is less than your variable "smallest", copy its value to
variable "smallest".
* If it is larger than your variable "largest", copy its value
to variable "largest".

### Write a c prog to find both largest and smallest number ina list of integers?

Here is a simple way: Iterate through the list, keeping track of
the largest and smallest values seen so far. If the current value
is less than the smallest, replace the smallest with this value.
Replace the largest is the current value is greater than it. When
you have finished the loop, you have the minimum and maximum
values. Initialize the largest and smallest value variables with
MAX_INT and MIN_INT from LIMITS.H to ensure that the first value
seen replaces it. Or,...
