Hi,

I'm trying to create a simple array in a C file. It goes something like this:

Code:

int NCON=89;
/*#define NCON 89*/
char *constel[89] = {
"And Andromedae",
(etc...)
"Vul Vulpeculae",
};


But when I call for constel[number] ( constel[7], for example) I get a null value. The same thing happens with another array I have:

Code:

/*#define NBNDRIES 357*/
int NBNDRIES = 357;
long bndries[4*357] = {
     0L,  86400L, 316800L,  84L,
 28800L,  52200L, 311400L,  84L,
(etc...)
     0L,  86400L, -324000L,  58L,
};


What am I doing so obviously wrong?

Regards,

Kepler

I removed the "*" from constel. Now I get the error: excess elements in char array initializer - but I've counted - it's correct.

Code:
long bndries[4*357] = {

I don't think you can do mathematical operations there.
