    writing characters...

    I am having trouble figuring out how to store a letter into a variable of the type char. I have an example of some code below. Thanks in advance.
    JK

    Code:
    #define  number_of_letters 6
    char letter;
    enum type_of_letter
    {
    a,
    b,
    c,
    d,
    e,
    f
    }
    
    for (i=0; i<number_of_letters; i++)
    {
    letter = ??? //want to copy the letter found in "type_of_letter" to letter.
    }

    Ummmm, that really isnt the way to go. Try using an array instead because enums are only integers (correct me if Im wrong), so in your code type_of_letter::a would be 0 I believe. Try something like this:
    Code:
    // bla bla bla
    char type_of_letter[number_of_letters] = {'a','b','c','d','e','f'};
    
    for (i=0; i<number_of_letters; i++)
    {
    letter = type_of_letter[i]
    }
    At least I guess this is what you want.
