    Question about functions of string vs char string

    In the using of char strings(char x[50]) you are able to assign, change, and veiw what is in the string based on position. For strings(string x) is it possible to do the same? If so, would you mind giving me examples so I can see?

    Try searching the Web for "C++ string".

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Alright, didn't think to do that, my head is a bit mixed up with code
