    Strings

    I am working on a string class, which asks the user for a string. I have a fixed length array size of 100. I have to ensure that the string length is less 100, if its greater than 100 it only copies 99 charachters...i've been playing with this and cant get it. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    if you want to be able to enter 100 char put the array size as 101 ie because of the extra null char.

    there is the strlen() funtion in string.h to tell you with the length of the string entered.
