im making a battleship game and so far i have this but im getting an error and i don't know what it means, this is the error error C2664: 'strcpy' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'char' to 'char *' this is my code

#include <iostream.h>

struct coord
{
 int x;
 int y;
};

int main()
{
 int c;
 int x=0;
 char view[7][25];
 coord place[2];

 strcpy(view[0],"            ___________ ");
 strcpy(view[1],"          1| o o o o o |");
 strcpy(view[2],"          2| o o o o o |");

 strcpy(view[4],"          4| o o o o o |");
 strcpy(view[5],"          5| o o o o o |");
 strcpy(view[6],"           |___________|");

That is just a character, not a pointer. same as attempting to do this: strcpy( view[0][0], "S"); If all you want to do is replace the single character then use the assignment operator, not strcpy(); view[place[i].y][place[i].x] = 's';
