I seem to be very bad with playing around with pointers. Basically the specialization template is supposed to return the address of the longest of the 5 strings provided. I keep getting an error on line 20 about char vs char *. Please some help, a good explanation on the logic would be nice too.

```
//Exc_6.cpp - More template practice
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
template <typename T>
T maxn(T array [], int n);
template <typename T>
T maxn(T * array[], int n);
int main()
{
int intArray[6] = {1,2,3,4,5,6};
double doubleArray[4] = {1.25, 2.5, 3.75, 5.01};
char * str[5] = {"Test1", "Test 2", "Testing3", "Hi", "LOL"};
int maxInt = maxn(intArray, 6);
double maxDouble = maxn(doubleArray, 4);
char * maxStr = maxn(str, 5);
cout << "Max int value is: " << maxInt << endl;
cout << "Max double value is: " << maxDouble << endl;
cout << "Max string value located at: " << maxStr << endl;
system("PAUSE");
}
template <typename T>
T maxn(T array [], int n)
{
T max = array[0];
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
if (array[i] > max)
max = array[i];
}
}
template <typename T>
T maxn(T * array[], int n)
{
int max = array[0];
for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
{
if (array[i].size() > max.size())
max = array[i];
}
return array[];
}
```
