char[] to char

Hi,

I'm trying to learn some basic encoding with c# for a command line
program and i have the following code:

static void Main(string[] args)
{
int a,b,d,z;
bool l;
string ba;
b=args.Length;
z=args.Length;
ba="Encoded: ";
for (a=0;a<b;a++)
{
char c = args[a].ToCharArray(); <- problem
d=0;
while (d<z)
{
c++;
d++;
}
z=z+z;
l=Random.Equals (3,20);
ba=ba + c + l.ToString();
}
Console.WriteLi ne(ba);
}

I get the error Cannot implicitly convert type 'char[]' to 'char'. How
can i change this?

> char c = args[a].ToCharArray(); <- problem

You're getting a char array back and trying to put it into a single char.

char [] c = args[a].ToCharArray(); <- solution

This is going to cause you problems further down.

I need a smart char * class, that acts like a char * in all cases, but lets you do some std::string-type stuff with it. (Please don't say to use std::string - it's not an option...). This is my attempt at it, but it seems to be lacking... I'm aware that strdup() is nonstandard (and a bad idea for C++ code) - please just bear with me: /* Assume relevant headers are included */ class char_ptr {

I understand the problem I'm having but am not sure how to fix it. My code passes two char* to a function which reads in some strings from a file and copies the contents into the two char*s. Now when my function returns, the values stored in the char* are some garbage values (perhaps because I didn't allocate any memory for them).. but even if I allocate memory in the function, on the return of this function I see garbage.. here is my...

In a post regarding toupper(), Richard Heathfield once asked me to think about what the conversion of a char to unsigned char would mean, and whether it was sensible to actually do so.

(again :)) Hello everyone. I'll ask this even at risk of being accused of not researching adequately. My question (before longer reasoning) is: How does declaring (or defining, whatever) a variable **var make it an array of pointers? I realize that 'char **var' is a pointer to a pointer of type char (I hope). And I realize that with var, var is actually a memory address (or at

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
