printing characters inside an array

printing characters inside an array

Given the following array and predefined values:

#define MAX_H 24
#define MAX_W 80

char arr[MAX_H][MAX_W];
char symbol = '#';

How do I print(to the screen)the following characters inside the array(can be anywhere inside the array):

                 #        #
                 #        #
                 #        #

   thanks, packedd.

RE: printing characters inside an array

    I think this is what you are looking for:

// Print array
// get every location in row of array
for (int j = 0; j < MAX_H; j++)
    // get every location in column of array
    for (int k = 0; k < MAX_W; k++)
        cout << char[j][k]; // prints array w/o endline
    cout << endl; // print endline
