    Static array

    Code:
    void array(int x, int y)
    {
    	a[x][y] = 'A';			
    }
    I have a[][] delcared as a static char array in main, and this function is called from another one with parametrs inputed by the user. I want to put the letter A, at the position provided by x an y, however, it says x and y are never used in fucntion array.

    Why is this occuring?

    Thanks

    Because you can't access main's local variables.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    Where should I declare the static array then?
    Before main?

    I declared it outside of main, and its working, but is that assignment I made with a[x][y] = 'A' correct?

    Thanks

    Its either Im not printing the array correctly, or that assignment statment is wrong.

    Yea the statement is correct. You may want to check the size of x and y to make sure it's valid.
