using calloc

(OP)
how would i use calloc to allocate memory for a 2-D array outside of main.  in main are:  int rows, int cols, and int **array.  the values for rows and cols were inputed by the user in a separate function also outside of main.  so far i have:
int function (int *rows, int *cols, int ***array)
{
       int i;
       if(!(*array = (int **) calloc (*rows, sizeof (int *))))
       {
             printf("error message");
             return 1;       
             for (i = 0; i < *rows; i++)
                   if(!(*(array + i) = (int **) calloc (*cols, sizeof (int *))))
                   {
                        printf("error message");
                        return 1;  
                    }
        }
        return 0;
}
