C Array of String

     

In this section you will learn how to create an array of string in C.

A String is an array of char objects. An array of string can be declared and handled like a 2d(two dimensional) arrays. You can see in the given example that we have declare a 2 dimensional character array consisting of three 'rows' and twelve 'columns'. The array is initialized with three character strings. In C, a format specifier %s is used with the printf to print the string.

Here is the code:

ARRAYSTR.C

 

 


#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
void main() {
  clrscr();
  char arr[3][12]"Rose""India""technologies" };
  printf("Array of String is = %s,%s,%s\n", arr[0], arr[1], arr[2]);
  getch();
}

Output will be displayed as:

ARRAYSTR.EXE

String overflow error

use arr[3][20] instead of arr[3][12] because strlen("technologies") == 12 !!

Forgot the null char

I think you forgot the \0 (null terminated string). your array should have the size 13 and not 12. "technologies\0"
