    char arrays

    i need to read in a char array and check each character for validity as a dos filename. my problem is loading the array, accessing each element, then moving on to the next line of data.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. But I'll give it a try. You can create an array of filenames:

    Code:
    char filenames [NR_OF_FILENAMES][FILENAME_LEN];
    Load the array with strcpy:

    Code:
    strcpy (filename [index], just_a_filename);
    And traverse to the array with:

    Code:
    for (index = 0; index < NR_OF_FILENAMES; index++)
        do something with filename [index]
    If my interpretation of your question is incorrect, please give some more information.
