hello to everybody. i'm writing a knight tour program. in this code, you enter the dimension of the board and the frst place of the knight and then ask the user to what to do!
n = next
p = print
(the other are not completed yet)
here's the code :

``````#include <stdio.h>
#include <strings.h>
//print function for printing chess board with custom dimension and showing the knights moves

int print(int dim,int moved[15][15]) {
int i,j;
for(i = 1; i <= dim; i++) {
for(j = 1; j <= dim; j++) {
if(moved[i-1][j-1] != -1) {
printf("|  %d  |", moved[i-1][j-1]);
}
else printf("|     |");
}
printf("\n");
for(j = 1; j <= dim; j++) printf("|_____|");
printf("\n");
}
}

/*--------------------------*/
//next function for print the possible movements for the knight.

int next(int *firstX, int *firstY, int dimension,int allmoves[15][15],int *counter) {
int moves[8][2],i = 0,count = 0,next_move;
if(*firstX + 2 <= dimension && *firstY + 1 <= dimension ) {
moves[i][0] = *firstX + 2;
moves[i][1] = *firstY + 1;
i++;
count++;
if(moves[i-1][0] != moves[i-1][1]) {
moves[i][0] = moves[i - 1][1];
moves[i][1] = moves[i - 1][0];
i++;
count++;
}
}
if(*firstX + 2 <= dimension && *firstY - 1 <= dimension && *firstY - 1 > 0) {
moves[i][0] = *firstX + 2;
moves[i][1] = *firstY - 1;
i++;
count++;
if(moves[i-1][0] != moves[i-1][1]) {
moves[i][0] = moves[i - 1][1];
moves[i][1] = moves[i - 1][0];
i++;
count++;
}
}
if(*firstX - 2 <= dimension && *firstX - 2 > 0 && *firstY + 1 <= dimension) {
moves[i][0] = *firstX - 2;
moves[i][1] = *firstY + 1;
i++;
count++;
if(moves[i-1][0] != moves[i-1][1]) {
moves[i][0] = moves[i - 1][1];
moves[i][1] = moves[i - 1][0];
i++;
count++;
}
}
if(*firstX - 2 <= dimension && *firstX - 2 > 0 && *firstY - 1 <= dimension && *firstY - 1 > 0) {
moves[i][0] = *firstX - 2;
moves[i][1] = *firstY - 1;
i++;
count++;
if(moves[i-1][0] != moves[i-1][1]) {
moves[i][0] = moves[i - 1][1];
moves[i][1] = moves[i - 1][0];
i++;
count++;
}
}
for(i = 0; i < count; i++) printf("%d. (%d , %d)\n", i+1, moves[i][0],moves[i][1]);
int sw = 1;
printf("Choose one movement: ");
scanf("%d", &next_move);
while(sw) {
if (allmoves[moves[next_move][0]][moves[next_move][1]] == -1)  {
allmoves[moves[next_move][0]][moves[next_move][1]] = *counter;
*counter++;
*firstX = moves[next_move][0];
*firstY = moves[next_move][1];
sw = 0;
}
else sw = 1;
}
}
void main() {
const int maxRow = 100, maxCol = 100;
int k,j,n, row, col, board[maxRow][maxCol],i = 0,moves[8][2],counter = 0,moved[15][15];
for(i = 0; i < 15; i++) {
for(j = 0; j < 15; j++) {
moved[i][j] = -1;
}
}
scanf("%d", &n);
printf("enter the first position of Knight: ");
scanf("%d %d", &row, &col);
moved[row-1][col-1] = counter;
counter++;
printf("\n What Do You Want ?! (n, b, p, e)\n");
next(&row,&col,n,moved,&counter);
}
print(n,moved[15][15]);
else
printf("It's WRONG ! \n");
}

}
``````

as you see, i used a 2d array for marking the movements, 0 for the first move, 1 for the second and so on .
the next function does work well but the problem is when i call the print function, the program crash!
i'll appreciate any help. thank you.

One thing I see, is that you're passing the `moved` array to the print function incorrectly:

``````print(n,moved);
``````

Without any sort of error message, it's hard to say if that is the problem though.
