Look at the code below:
#include "stdafx.h"
#include "conio.h"
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
{
//Snippet 1
char name[20] = "Some Name";
printf("%sn", name);
name[1] = 'a';
printf("%sn", name);
//Snippet 2
char * name2 = "Some Name";
printf("%sn", name2);
name2[1] = 'a';                 //==>Error Here
printf("%sn", name2);
getch();
return 0;
}
 
 Why we get runtime error from code snippet2?

    What's the error? (I can guess, but that wouldn't help you.) Tom
