Why does my function (in VC5) give "cannot convert from 'char *' to 'char'" as an error??

void CRational::ddy ()
{
char Fc [] = {m_Numerator + "/" + m_Denominator};
printf("%s",Fc);
return;
}

try this

void CRational::ddy ()
{  
          char Fc[] = {'0'+m_Numerator, '/', '0'+m_Denominator};
          printf("%s",Fc);
          return;
}

since you are using VC5 why don't you try this

void CRational::ddy()
{
      String a(m_Numerator);
      String c('/');
      String b(m_Denominator);
      String Fc = a+c+b;

      cout << Fc <<endl;
}
