    Pointers and arrays

    I'm trying to create a program that asks for 2 names and a number. Make sure both names have AT LEAST as many characters as the number. Example Thomas Ralph 4 This is OK because Thomas and Ralph have at least 4 characters in them. If its not OK ask for another number. Switch the letters from both names up to the number. Using the previous example Remove the Thom from Thomas and replace it with Ralp from Ralph giving you Ralpas. Remove the Ralp from Ralph and replace it with Thom from Thomas giving you Thomh, and then print out the names after they have been switched.

    It seems you understand the algorithm, but what is the question?
