Is the following code permitted or prohibited by rule 6.2?

Code: Select all

signed char a[10] = {"123456789"};
signed char *b = "123456789";

Neither of the examples given is permitted by Rule 6.2..

Here are some more examples:

Code: Select all

signed char a[10] = "123456789";   /* Non-compliant Rule 6.2 */
char a[10] = "123456789";          /* Compliant Rule 6.2 */

char x[4] = {1, 2, 3, 4};          /* Non-compliant Rules 6.2 and 6.3 */
