#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#define IIMAGE "T";
int main(){
printf("%d",strlen(IIMAGE));
}

What is the problem of this program? I expect the output to be 1 but it keep saying syntax error on the line of printf.
What is the problem and how to correct it?

Hi william007,

The ; in the #define ...
Remove it

Cheers!

sunnycoder is right!

After pre-processing this line:

printf("%d",strlen(IIMAGE));

will become:

printf("%d",strlen("T";));

which is clearly not what you want.
