    need help in passing strings to functions..

    Code:
    int main() {
    char text1[SIZE] = {"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."};
    printf("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\n");
    printf("Input the text above:\n");
    gets(input);
    check(input, text1);
    printf("Score: %g\n", score);
    }
    
    void check(char input[], char text[]) {
    	
    for (i=0; i<SIZE; i++)
    for (j=0; j<SIZE; j++) {
    words[i][j] = '\0';
    cwords[i][j] = '\0';
    }
    
    for (c=0, i=0, j=0; input[c] != '\0'; c++, j++) {
    if (input[c] == ' ') {
    words[i][j] = '\0';
    c++;
    i++;
    if (i>=10) i=0;
    j=0;
    }
    words[i][j] = input[c];
    }
    		
    for (c=0, i=0, j=0; text[c] != '\0'; c++, j++) {
    if (text[c] == ' ') {
    cwords[i][j] = '\0';
    c++;
    i++;
    if (i>=10) i=0;
    j=0;
    }
    cwords[i][j] = text[c];
    }		
    
    for (c=0, score=0; words[c] != '\0'; c++)
    if (strcmp(words[c], cwords[c])==0) score++;
    }
    well, that's much of the code so far.. it checks wheter the user inputted the correct string by comparing the words of each strings.. it also compiled but it crashes everytime i run the program.. is there anything wrong?
    Thanks!

    Words array is not declared.

    oh.. this is just part of the program! as i've said earlier, it already compiled.. the problem is when i run the program.. it always crashes when it goes from the main function to the check function!

    please assume that everything else are declared..

    We can not answer the question without some added information which you do not seem to want to supply. You are probably overwriting some memory location that your program does not own.
