I have a function that is returning a string that looks like this:
Then back in my main I have this:
char* getstring(char choice)
does some stuff...
The problem is that atoi keeps returning zero. After tempstring is returned from the function, it is a string which only contains digits, no letters or anything else, except for the null terminator at the end of the string.
tempstring = getstring(mychar);
myinteger = atoi(tempstring);
I have run the program with a breakpoint at the atoi line and I can see that "tempstring" contains an integer. I can read in the Locals box:
"tempstring 0x0013fae8 "80" "
after I step through the atoi line, tempstring is empty and the atoi has put a 0 into myinteger.
I don't understand why this is happening. I have also tried using strtol in place of atoi, but with no luck.
