ok I am making a maze for my school with gotoxy and getch and 2d character arrays I have 2 errors though when I am compiling it..

here's the source:

#include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <ctype.h>

using namespace::std;

char moveL;
char moveU;
char moveD;
char move;
int mx=1;
int my=1;
int i, j;
char direction;
const char up_key='w', down_key='s', left_key='a', right_key='d';
char keypress;
char matrix[100][100];
void gotoxy(short x, short y)
{
      HANDLE hConsoleOutput;
      COORD Cursor_an_Pos = {x,y};
      hConsoleOutput = GetStdHandle (STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
      SetConsoleCursorPosition(hConsoleOutput, Cursor_an_Pos);
}



void loadgrid()

            for (i=0; i<26; i++)

I keep getting this error in it:

newmaze.cpp
newmaze.cpp(47) : error C2059: syntax error : '{'
newmaze.cpp(47) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '{'
newmaze.cpp(47) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '}'

no clue what it is talking about, could someone help me out?

matrix[i][j]= {" ------------    ---------------------- \n","| | |____  |   | | |__ | ____    |     |\n","|  ____  |___| | | | __|_  | |____| _  |\n","| |____| |  _|_  |__     | | |  __|_ | |\n","|_|_           _____     | |_____   ___|\n","|     ___   |_   |  ________        |  |\n","|   |  |  ____   |       |  ___  |___  |\n","| | | _|      |  |    ___|  |  |     | |\n","|_| |___  |   |  | |_    |   __|__   | |\n","|  __  ___|   |______    |_______  |   |\n","|__| |___  ___   |___________| |_|_|_| |\n","|          |     |      _____|_      | |\n","| __  _____|_|___|                 | | |\n","| |     |    |  ___  |___   ___  |_|___ \n","| |   |_|_|  |  _______      |  _|_     \n","| | | | | |  |    |__________| |  _____|\n","| | |___|____| |  |  ___     __|_____| |\n","|_____  |      |     __________|  ___| |\n","|_____  |    |_|          _____|  |    |\n","|       |  | |    _|_             | |  |\n","|  | |___  |             _________| |__|\n","|  | |   | |    |    |_|_|         ____|\n","|  | |_____|    |_|_        |  | ____  |\n","|  |____|  ______   |___    |  |  _  | |\n","|     |    |            |   |  |   | | |\n"," ------------------------   ----------- \n"};

That matrix can not be initialized like that -- you have to use strcpy() to copy all those strings into the array elements.

strcpy(matrix[0],"------------    ---------------------- \n");
strcpy(matrix[1],"| | |____  |   | | |__ | ____    |     |\n");
// etc. etc

or initialize the matrix on the same line where it was declared.
