    Array problem - inavlid initializer

    When I try to create a second array, I get the following error(s):
    Test.cpp: In function `int main()':
    Test.cpp:10: invalid initializer
    From the following code:
    Code:
    int main ( void )
    {
    	char * ArrayOne[2] = { "One - One", "One - Two" };
    	char * ArrayTwo[2] = ( "Two - One", "Two - Two" );
    	int Counter;
    	for ( Counter = 0; Counter < 2; Counter ++ )
    	{
         		cout << ArrayOne[Counter] << endl << ArrayTwo[Counter] << endl;
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    Why?

    Moreover,
    What I am trying to do is:
    Code:
    int main ( void )
    {
    	char * ArrayOne[2] = { "C:\\Windows\\Network.txt", "C:\\Windows\\Printers.txt" };
    	char * ArrayTwo[2] = ( "C:\\Windows\\Desktop\\Netowkr.txt", "C:\\Windows\\Printers.txt" );
    	char * ArrayThree[2] = ( "Network documentation", "Printers documentation" );
    	int Counter;
    	for ( Counter = 0; Counter < 2; Counter ++ )
    	{
         		cout << FileCopy ( ArrayOne[Counter], ArrayTwo[Counter], ArrayThree[Counter] << endl;
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    Or is there a better way?

    wrong type of brace, they must be curly braces when initialising arrays.

    Code:
    char * ArrayOne[2] = { "One - One", "One - Two" };
    char * ArrayTwo[2] = { "Two - One", "Two - Two" };
    Probably a typo you didnt even see
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    lol try this man

    Your code:

    ============================================
    int main ( void )
    {
    char * ArrayOne[2] = { "One - One", "One - Two" };
    char * ArrayTwo[2] = ( "Two - One", "Two - Two" );
    int Counter;
    for ( Counter = 0; Counter < 2; Counter ++ )
    {
    cout << ArrayOne[Counter] << endl << ArrayTwo[Counter] << endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }
    ============================================

    Fixed code:

    ============================================
    int main ( void )
    {
    char * ArrayOne[2] = { "One - One", "One - Two" };
    char * ArrayTwo[2] = { "Two - One", "Two - Two" };
    int Counter;
    for ( Counter = 0; Counter < 2; Counter ++ )
    {
    cout << ArrayOne[Counter] << endl << ArrayTwo[Counter] << endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }
    ============================================

    Should run fine now.
    Sometimes the problem is staring you right in your face.
