    Question Printing an array of inputted characters

    Greetings everyone,

    I cannot seem to output an array of strings after inputting it.
    The user should input Names in each cell and then the names should be outputted.
    The output should give the inputted Name as well as the Points. I've done it with Points, but the names I cannot output.

      char name[15];
      int cnum;
      int points[15];
      int cont;
      int i;
          for (i=0; i<15; i++)
        printf("1. ");
          printf("Insert the name of contest number %i : ", i+1);
        scanf("%s", &name[i]);
       printf("3. ");
      printf("Insert points [between 0 e 100]: ");
        scanf("%d", &points[i]);
     printf("Continue for other participants? 1=yes, 0=no:\n"); 
     scanf("%d", &cont);
          for(i=0; i<cnum; i++)
    	  printf("Contestant numb %i info:\n Points %i\n Name %s\n", i+1, points[i], name);
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Your name array needs to be a 2D array of chars, if you're expecting to store strings.

    char names[15][MAX_NAME_LENGTH];

    Your indentation could be better as well. Indentation - cpwiki
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
