    [RESOLVED] string and char '\n'

    I don't try to understand

    tab=new char*[rig];
    for (int i=0; i<rig; i++)
       tab[i]=new char[col+1];
    for (int r=0; r<rig; r++)
    	for (int c=0; c<col+1; c++)
    I allocate two-dim matrix in heap memory, where every element is char type and I set every element to '\n'.
    Why when I ask e.g. length of row I get number different to zero?!
    If rig=5 and col=8 , strlen(tab[r]) gives 7

    tab[r] identifies a row of matrix so if I use strlen(tab[r]) first char is '\n' and It should return 0, what do you think?

    The termination delimiter for strlen() is \0 (null) , not \n.
