Char [ ]

I have a char [50] called buf, when I try:
buf = "D:\\Masks\\";
it tells me it can't convert a char[10] to char[50]

1. try

strcpy( buf, "...etc..." ) ;

 to do the copy

you need to #include<strings.h>

2. if you are initializing and never changing the string, you can do

char buf[] = "...etc.." ;

the buf string is then allocated to exactly the right size.
