    Exclamation Help -- C++ -- Srings

    I am getting an error while compiling, saying that strcpy is not declared in the scope. This segment is the definitions for monsters in a text adventure.

    Code:
    void initializeMonsters()
    {
        // old elk
    	monsterArray[0].strength = 10;
    	monsterArray[0].dexterity = 10;
    	monsterArray[0].hp = 10;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[0].name, "Old Elk");
    	// Archer
    	monsterArray[1].strength = 15;
    	monsterArray[1].dexterity = 20;
    	monsterArray[1].hp = 15;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[0].name, "Archer");
    	// Dreadful Skeleton
    	monsterArray[2].strength = 20;
    	monsterArray[2].dexterity = 10;
    	monsterArray[2].hp = 25;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[0].name, "Dreadful Skeleton");
    	// Ug'lor
    	monsterArray[3].strength = 25;
    	monsterArray[3].dexterity = 25;
    	monsterArray[3].hp = 60;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[0].name, "Ug'lor");
        // Graldo >>Fight Before Ga'rados<<
    	monsterArray[4].strength = 40;
    	monsterArray[4].dexterity = 45;
    	monsterArray[4].hp = 60;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[0].name, "Graldo");
    	// Ga'Rados >>boss<<
    	monsterArray[5].strength = 95;
    	monsterArray[5].dexterity = 115;
    	monsterArray[5].hp = 90;
    	strcpy(monsterArray[5].name, "Ga'rados");
    }
    The declarations that I made are:
    Code:
    # include <iostream>
    #include<ctime>
    #include<cstdlib>
    #include<cctype>
    using namespace std;
    I do not understand what I am doing wrong.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    You should include header <string>.
