What do you mean by "2". *Is it an array of char arrays and the first
of such holds the string '2' '\0'?

I am using Xcode...not that that probably makes any difference.
Initially arr[2][13] is declared as a char array. In the debugger
window, there is a column for value and the "initial" value of arr is
"2". If one expands this, then one sees 2 arrays of 13 elements, and
Unless you initialized the array or assigned some data to its
elements, what you are looking at is residual garbage, what the
standard calls an indeterminate value.
as you say below, these seem to be contiguous. I was trying to find a
way of seeing what the address of each element is, but have been
unable to do so....
If you want the address of an object, any object, aggregate or scalar,
you use the & operator on that object. &arr, &arr[1], &arr[0][5] will
all evaluate the addresses of the objects specified. If you are
lookinjg for a way to display the address in your debugger, then you
need to ask in a newgroup where that debuggerf is topical.
