    Question string of women (names)

    Code:
    Hi All,
    
    I've got a few lines of code 
    
    - void getinfo(char &, char &, string &, string &, int);
    - int getmove(char [], string);
    - string name1, name2;
    
    which use <string> header, but my compiler can only use <string.h> so these lines don't work properly
    i.e. name1 and name2 came out as single character instead of Michelle, or Gwen for example. 
    
    So how do I replace string to make the prog work on my compiler?
    
    Many thanks for your help and advice.

    You can better make it dynamic

    Code:
     char name1[];
     char name2[];

    a multidimensional array

    Code:
    char names[][256];
