    Ahhh Errorrrrs!!!

    Could anyone help me out?
    I'm doing a problem that requires a 2 dimensional array, and everything is working fine and storing. However, at the end of the program I get 3 error messages saying the program is crashed even though it executed properly. I'm using Borland c++ 5, here's the code if it'll help out

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>

    void main(){

    int matrix[4][5];
    int rr,cc;
    int max=500;
    int min=-500;

    for (rr=1;rr<=4;rr++){
    for (cc=1;cc<=5;cc++){
    matrix[rr][cc] = (rand() % (max + 1 - min)) + min;
    cout <<matrix[rr][cc]<<" ";
    cout <<"\n";

    You're violating the array bounds.

    int matrix[4][5] has four rows (0 through 3) and five columns (0 through 4). All indexes start at zero -- you're starting at one.

    Change it to:

    	for (rr=0;rr<4;rr++){
    		for (cc=0;cc<5;cc++){

    You've made a very common error for beginners, that I made countless times when learning C:

    if you declare an array as

    type array[5];

    the value array[5] is OUTSIDE the range of the array. The array goes from 0 - 4, NOT 0 - 5 or 1 - 5.

    So, use < instead of <= in your for loop, and start with 0 instead of 1.

    Edit: I see I was beaten to the response by a few seconds. I'll leave this up anyway.
