I'm having problem with storing values in multi dimensional arrays. I need to have 10 * 10 array with rows and columns. I have intitialized the array with blank spaces " ". But after this I need to store letters like 'A' 'C' 'S' on specific locations in that array.

for example

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
0
------------------------------------------
1
-------------------------------------------
3
--------------------------------------------
4
--------------------------------------------
5
------------------------------------------
6
-------------------------------------------
7
-------------------------------------------
8
--------------------------------------------
9
--------------------------------------------

First question, do I print this layout board using for loop?

Second, that how would i put character 'A' in location Row = 0 and Column = 5???

and then display it

I know these questions are really basic but I'm just a beginner.
Thanks

You can traverse a two-dimensional array with a nested loop:

``````for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
for ( j = 0; j < 10; j++ )
printf ( "%c ", array[i][j] );
}``````

>Second, that how would i put character 'A' in location Row = 0 and Column = 5???
Assuming it's a two-dimensional array of char or int:

``array[0][5] = 'A';``

``````for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
for ( j = 0; j < 10; j++ )
printf ( "%c ", array[i][j] );
}``````

Is this the initializing process?

No, that would allow you to print every element of a multi-dimensional array of 10 by 10.
But you can use the same construct of two for loops to assign values to each element.

Oh, ok. Thanks

Another question I would like to ask is that...assuming I have stored specific values in the 10*10 array, and I want the user to guess their locations on the array until he runs out of given tries////how can I do that?

Should I use while loop for tries?
But I would like some hint how to put user provided rows and column and compare it with values on my 10*10array?

I would appreciate some help.

I am not quite sure I understand what you are asking.
Could you rephase differently, or better yet give us an example of what you what to achieve?
