    String Problem

    creation of *text[] =
    char* text[9][201]={
    "This is a test",
    "t3.",
    "hi."
    };

    alltext is described as : char *AllText[1][1];

    in constructor : (passed *text[])

    for(int i=0; i<vlen; i++){
    AllText[i][0]=new char[slen+1];
    strcpy(AllText[i][0], text[i]);
    cout<<AllText[i][0]<<endl;
    }


    In the display function :
    for(int i=0; i<vlen; i++)
    cout<<AllText[i][0]<<endl;


    -------------------------------------------
    OUTPUT:
    This is a test
    t3.
    hi.

    This is a test
    xxx - crash here - xxx
    ---------------------------------------------


    **CRASH WHEN GOING TO AllText[1][0]**
    (first line prints fine)

    Try increasing the array size:

    Code:
    char *AllText[9][1];

    AllText[1][1];


    is an array with exactly one field: AllText[0][0].

    The numbers in brackets are supposed to give the arrays size. If you want it to contain 2x2 fields, it should be AllText[2][2].

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
