    Angry Driving me crazy

    i have this problem for over a week now..
    How do i then search the AdapterName array..
    get to get each individual set of characters that make a string.
    i am using this method
    and the application just crashes upon load
    Code:
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    
    char AdapterName[8192];
    char *temp,*temp1;
    
    //AdapterName char array gets populated by
    
    if(PacketGetAdapterNames(AdapterName,&AdapterLength)==FALSE)
    {
    cout << "Unable to detect the network adapters installed on this box!\n";
    return -1;
    }
    
    temp=AdapterName;
    temp1=AdapterName;
    
    while ((*temp!='\0')||(*(temp-1)!='\0'))
    {
            if (*temp=='\0') 
            {
             strncpy(AdapterList[i],temp1,(temp-temp1)*2);
             temp1=temp+1;
             i++;
             }
    	
             temp++;	//Incrementing Original char Pointer
    
    }
    if anyone could help me out it would be really appreciated

    I don't think you wanted to do this in the while condition

    (*(temp-1)!='\0')

    i'm not sure that the -1 is right

    well, it may be becaues you are using the logical OR operator(||) in the loop's conditional statement. Both (*temp!='\0') and
    (*(temp-1)!='\0') would have to be false. That might be the problem. I would try using AND (&&) instead of OR, or taking out the second part of that conditional completely.
