    Accessing a colum in an Array

    I give up and am asking for help here. Im playing around with arrays and trying to get characters from within the array.
    Code:
    int main()
    {
    	char array[20] = "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0";
    	char ch[20];
    	int i;
    
    	for(i = 3; i < 7; i++)
    	{
    	        ch[20] = ch[20] + array[i];
    	}
    
    	cout << ch;
    	cout << endl;
    	return 0;
    }
    This will spit out a bunch of strange symbols and then the ",2,3,4,5". What am I doing wrong this is driving me nuts.

    What is it that you want it to exactly print?

    With this array I want to try and print only the characters ",2,3,4,5". My loop however first prints a bunch of junk and then will print ",2,3,4,5" so I take it that I am not doing it the correct way.

    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	int array[10] = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0};
    	int i;
    
    	for(i = 1; i <=4; i++)
    	{
