Hey so I need to print out a matrix using malloc function. I have done that part and this is my code

Code:#include<stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> int main (void) { int row_size1,col_size1,row_size2,col_size2; int **A; int i = 0, j = 0; //allocate space for 1 matrix A = malloc(1 * sizeof (int *)); printf("Enter the number of rows and columns:"); scanf("%d %d",&row_size1,&col_size1); A= malloc(row_size1*sizeof(int*)); for(i=0;i<row_size1;i++) { A[i]=(int*)malloc(col_size1*sizeof(int)); } printf("Enter the elements of the first matrix write 99 when done:"); for(i=0;i<row_size1;i++) { for(j=0;j<col_size1;j++) { scanf("%d",&A[i][j]); if (A[i][j] == 99) // 'x' is character variable I declared to \ break; } } printf("The required matrix is\n"); for(i=0;i<row_size1;i++) { for(j=0;j<col_size1;j++) printf("%d ",A[i][j]); printf("\n"); } free(A); }

So the catch is I don't want to ask the users seperately the number of rows and columns of a matrix. I want them to tell me at the same time they are telling me the matrix.

for example:

so I want the code to record the first 2 values (2,2) as the number of rows and columns and then print out the rest of the matrix.Code:printf("What is your matrix") (user) 2 2 1 2 3 4

The only thing confusing me about this is how I am supposed to allocate space for a matrix I don't know the dimensions of

Thanks
