    Hi Gr3g,

    You need to copy the strings to your array:
    Code:
    char blah[2][100];  /* can hold 2 strings, each max 99 characters long */
    
    strcpy(blah[0], "blibity blah");
    strcpy(blah[1], "blibbering baww");
    or if you are using MFC:
    Code:
    CString blah[2];
    
    blah[0] = "blibity blah";
    blah[1] = "blibbering baww";

    That is right ...

    Hi,
    I just want to add something ....

    Every string is an array of char, has the same number of char that the string has + "/0", which will allow it to have one more room for the " /0" { "/0 means end of hte string "}

    Now you can do what monster told you to do, or you can use dinamic array,

    As in the same above,,,!

    Or...
    Code:
    #include <string>
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        string blah[2] = { "blibity blah", "blibbering baww" };
    
        cout << blah[0] << ' ' << blah[1] << endl;
    
        return 0;
    }
    Prints out: blibity blah blibbering baww
