    Compiler Crashing... WHY?

    Why would this be crashing?
    I am using this code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <iomanip.h>
    #include <ctype.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    //Global Variables
    ifstream infile;
    ofstream outfile;
    
    typedef char string[30];
    
    //Prototypes
    void tocaps(string []);
    void bubblesort(string [],string [], string [], int);
    void cutoff(string []);
    void dashinsert(string []);
    int binarySearch(int list[],int size, int key);
    void report();
    
    int main()
    {
    string social[30],phone[30],name[30];
    int i;
    int numel=30;
    	infile.open("In599A.Dat");
    		while(!infile.eof())
    		{
    			for(i=0;i<23;i++)
    			{
    			infile>>social[i]>>phone[i];
    			infile.getline(name[i],30);
    			}
    		}
    //Function calls
    		bubblesort(name,social,phone,numel);
    return 0;
    }
    
    void bubblesort(string name[],string social[], string phone[], int numel)
    {
    	int i, j;
    	string temp;
    	for(i=0;i<numel-1;i++)
    		for(j=1;j<numel;j++)
    		{
    			if(strcmp(name[j],name[j-1])>0)
    			{
    			strcpy(temp,name[j]);
    			strcpy(name[j],name[j-1]);
    			strcpy(name[j-1],temp);
    
    			strcpy(temp,social[j]);
    			strcpy(social[j],social[j-1]);
    			strcpy(social[j-1],temp);
    
    			strcpy(temp,phone[j]);
    			strcpy(phone[j],phone[j-1]);
    			strcpy(phone[j-1],temp);			
    			}
    		}
    }

    Heh, your compiler is crashing, or your program is crashing? If it's really the compiler... i'd suggest getting a new one
    What compiler are you using, btw?

    If it's crashing, and you're using arrays, that can only mean one thing...
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    Your indexing into some array incorrectly.
