    passing 2dimensional arrays to functions

    Can someone explain to me about passing 2 dimensional arrays to functions.
    To bemore specific:
    I know that the function prototype should look like:
    int MatSum(int mat[][N], int row, int col)
    but why do I have to pass N and col? (arent they the same?), and how whoud I call the function?

    thanx

    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
