    Redefining arrays

    this might seem basic but i'm just starting with C (and this forum).

    I just would like to be clear on the syntax for redefining specific array variables. For example, if i would like example[3][1] to be redefined as 9, what would the syntax be?

    As in assignment to a specific array element? That would be like an assignment to a "ordinary" variable, e.g.,
    Code:
    example[3][1] = 9;

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
