    arrary into function

    I am trying to pass a 2d array into a function but it keeps giving me errors. Can someone post some source of what the function will look like and how to call it.

    Thanks

    I do it like this. This example is with a 2D char array.

    Code:
    void fillArray( char (*aBuffer)[MAX_ROWS]){
          int c =5;
      /* accessing individual elements.  Should really ensure
          that i am not accesing elements passed max_rows here. 
         e.g.  if c<max_rows.  But this is only example only */
    
       strcpy(aBuffer[c], "Hello there");
    
      /* filling with a for loop */
       for(c=0;c<MAX_ROWS;c++)
          strcpy(aBuffer[c], "Some text");
    
       etc...
         
    
    }
    Cheers,

    oh and you call it like this. sorry....

    Code:
    #define MAX_ROWS 1000
    
    main(void){
    
      char stringArray[50][MAX_ROWS];
    
      fillArray(stringArray)
    
      etc...
    }
    There are other ways to prototype the fillArray function. I think you can also do this. But no sure...

    Code:
    void fillArray( char aBuffer[][MAX_ROWS]){
       etc....
    }
