You can use the String class constructor that takes a Char and a
count.

s = New String("x"c, 10)

When I run the program, I get a Debug Error saying "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information." I put a cout statement (//cout << "len of cPtr: " << _len << endl; ) in my constructor and see that _len is 3435973837 though my character pointer has only a few characters. Then I get the usual message as state above.

Hey guys, I'm new here, just a simple question. I'm learning to Program in C, and I was recommended a book called, "Mastering C Pointers", just asking if any of you have read it, and if it's worth the $25USD. I'm just looking for a book on Pointers, because from what I've read it's one of the toughest topics to understand. thanks in advanced.
