Hi
Is there a way I could reffer the arguments of a function the same way as the arguments for the main function ?
ex.

void dummyFunction(char* arg1, char* arg2, char* arg3)
{
int count;
    for(count = 0; count < 3; count++)
    {
            alocate memory for each argument one by one
    }
}

Thanks

/* I'm not sure what alocate memory for each argument one by one is supposed to do, but perhaps you mean something like this? */
void dummyFunction( char *args[3] ){
  int count;
   for( count = 0; count < 3; count++ ){
       char *copy;
       copy = malloc(strlen(args[count])+1);
       strcpy(copy,args[count]);
       printf("%s\n",copy);
       free(copy);
   }
}
main(){
   char *args[3] ={"hello", "world", ""};
   dummyFunction(args);
}

I want to grade your answer but the system just provide me with the posibility to write a comment. The grading part has vanished.
How can I grade it ?

You can't grade it because I didn't submit an answer, because I wasn't sure what the question was.
But since it sounds like you have nevertheless gotten what you needed, I'll submit one now.
If there was anything you wanted clarified, please comment.
