    Receiving an array in a function

    If I have two global variables char filename[80] and char message[80]. If I want to pass them in to a different c file's functions. In one I put create_file(char* filename) in the other i put print_message(char message[])...are the two parameters the same? If I put char* message I get the same results either way. Is there any diff?

    If they're global variables then why are you passing them as parameters?

    >Is there any diff?
    No, the two are the same thing. Use the one you find to be more clear.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    correction: Prelude would be a mistress, not a pimp.
