    array input/output problem

    input
    --------
    00000
    11111
    01010
    11001
    00110

    all i want to do is store this in a 2d char array. my problem is the correct loop to do so. the obsticle i keep running into is the damn newline character. i put a debug statement in after my loop and im getting a ascii value 10, new line, after each row should end. the rows and columns are predefined. my output would look like this ...

    array[0][0] = char 0
    array[0][0] = ascii 48
    array[0][1] = char 0
    array[0][1] = ascii 48
    array[0][2] = char 0
    array[0][2] = ascii 48
    array[0][3] = char 0
    array[0][3] = ascii 48
    array[0][4] = char 0
    array[1][4] = ascii 48
    array[1][0] = char

    array[1][0] = ascii 10
    array[1][1] = char 1
    array[1][1] = ascii 49
    array[1][2] = char 1
    array[1][2] = ascii 49
    array[1][3] = char 1
    array[1][3] = ascii 49

    ... and so on
    can anyone help with the loop ?? i been trying with a combination of for nested loops but no luck.

    thank you salem. your loop put me in the right direction. heres the loop the worked the way i needed it.

    Code:
    for(j = 0; j < rows; j++)
       for(k = 0; k < cols)
          while((array[j][k] = getchar()) != '\n'
             k++;
