Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Most of the time, segmentation faults are caused by an array index that is too large. That's the case here as well. Check the values of `var` and try to figure out when that value is too large to access x/number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But what's the value of var when `var >= size`?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's not var>=size it was var>=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As long as `var < size`, the loop will run. But after the loop is finished, what is the value of var? (which you use on number in the second loop)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then it decreases in that while loop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's not `size  1`, since `(size  1) < size`.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it goes in to an infinite loop and prints weird symbols when i xpect some numbers.........

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's a problem in `print_alt`. You're trying to print a string there ("%s"). A string in C is basically an array of characters ended by an element with the value 0 or '\0' (but not ended by '0'). Since number does not have a 0 at it's end, it'll keep printing something until the printf encounters a 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In your fprintf, the same thing is happening. You're trying to print an array as if it were a string. That's not going to work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh so i have to use a loop here?

slotema

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep. Like you did in the print function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what if a put a /0 in the end? will it work?

slotema

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It should stop printing, but what it's printing won't be readable numbers. If you're trying to print the integer 1 as a character, it won't show up as '1'.
