    Question alternative to <string.h>

    people say there are no stupid questions, well, this one was.
    There was a clear typo in my code which led to a memory error

    Without seeing the code we cannot comment on the error.

    Why would you need an alternative to string.h?

    Turn on your warnings in the compiler, and turn up the warning level to the highest level. This will help find errors or warnings in the code during the compile process.

    I think fabi.mueller solved the problem independently then removed the code.
