Builder 3 - Getting data input from user, Tedit

I am using Builder and have a problem getting data from the VCL, I want to do something like this, strcpy(name,Edit1->Text); this does not work but this does Edit2->Text = Edit1->Text; I need to initialise variable using the Tedit or other BCB3 component. In C++ I would have used cin>> or scanf();. I have tried searching for sample Code but have foound all the Sample Code Available mouse click driven with no real data comming  from the operator.
Can any one help me,

DAVID

I assume that name is declared as
  char name[...];
In other words, name is type char *.

strcpy (name,Edit1->Text)
fails because Edit1->Text is type AnsiString, not char *.

You can do this by writing

strcpy (name, (Edit1->Text).c_str());
