    pointers .....C language

    I need your help:

    name1 < name 2 > name 3

    I m writing a problem that place:
    a pointer on name 1
    a pointer on name 2
    a pointer on name 3

    I have been working on it more than 24 hours but in vain :cry:

    what i did is strcmp with < if it is place ptr 1 (it works)
    strcmp if there is sthg after the < place ptr 2 (it works)

    A name, assuming that you made it an array of characters, will always be a pointer. Make sure you understand that completely. It would help immensely if you posted your code so I can see exactly what you're doing incorrectly.

    not clear

    I don't understand your problem specification. The number one rule of computer science is that the problem specification must be spelled out clearly and non-ambiguous. You will find out this true for small assignments, and real projects.
