The following parameter list defines and integer argc and a char pointer to and array. I know that argc passes the number of command line arguments and argv is a character array that holds a string within each array element. I am having problems understanding the syntax. And array name is a pointer to some array. Is this a char pointer to a pointer I don't understand. I would like to write a routine that would store character string in each array element. IM Not wanting to change the main routine (parameter list it does it already)to store character string in each element but a routine that's called by main. I had to edit post to make this clear.
I have to wonder why you want to write something into that particular array? The purpose of argv is to hold the text of the command-line operation that was used to run the program. When the program starts, argc is automatically set to the number of items on the command line, and argv is populated with the strings that made up that command line.
One use case for modifying argv is when you're going to launch another task, to which you're forwarding your commandline arguments with some small tweaks. it's easier to modify argv than to prepare a new set of arrays. It's very rare, of course.
