    Question missing header file...

    Hi,

    I have been trying to run the program on visual studio c++ but it keeps giving me the error that alloc.h does not exist.
    Is it that the new compilers donot have some of the header files and/or i need to have some other decalaration for it?

    insert
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <alloc.h>
    
    void main(){
    
    		
    	char *names[6];
    	char n[50];
    	char *p;
    	int i, len;
    	for(i=0;i<6;i++)
    		printf("\n\r%u", names[i]);
    
    	for(i  0;i< 6;i++){
    
    		printf("Enter the number");
    		scanf("%s",n);
    		len = strlen(n);
    		p = malloc(len+1);
    		strcpy(p,n);
    		names[i] = p;
    	}
    
    	for (i =0;i< 6;i++){
    		printf("%s", names[i]);
    	}
    
    
    	/*for(i=0;i<6;i++){
    	printf("Enter the names");
    	scanf("%s", names[i]);
    	}*/
    }

    What do you believe you need alloc.h for, if it existed? (Hint: malloc is in <stdlib.h>.)

    Probably for the same reason he thinks he needs conio.h.

    Not to mention void main.

    @OP, whatever book you're reading, throw it away.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    In which case Salem's recommendation definitely applies.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.
