    Passing a string array to a function using pointers

    I'm having trouble passing a string array to another function. I can pass an integer array like this
    Code:
     int main(){
    int numbers[3] = {1,2,3};
    void print_array (int*array);
    print_array (numbers);
    }
    
    void print_array (int*array){
    	cout << (*array) << (*array+1);
    }
    however, I can't seem to change it so that I am able to pass a string array.

    Post your code that demonstrates the problem you are having.

    and why are you using array and not vector in the first place?
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
