Using strcpy_s() and strcat_s() with dynamically allocated strings

Hope this helps In the following code, I try to create a function that gets a dynamically allocated string. The function will ask the user to input another string that will also be dynamically allocated. Finally, you will allocate another large string to which the initial string will be copied, followed by the second string. , strcpy_s(tempstr, oldSize, *theStr);
should be

Dynamically allocated C array of strings

wish help you to fix your issue You can not malloc an array of class objects, because this function does not invoke any constructors. You just get memory filled with garbage, which you then try to reinterpret as an array of class objects.
Arrays of C++ objects are allocated with new[].

I hope this helps you . If you have the option of using C++ (as you mentioned), that is going to make your life a lot easier. You can then use a STL string (std::string) which manages dynamically sized strings for you. You can also drop the old scanf() beast and use std::cin.
code :
#include <iostream>
#include <string>

void main()
    std::string sInput;
    std::getline(std::cin, sInput);

    // alternatively, you could execute this line instead:
    // std::cin >> sInput;
    // but that will tokenize input based on whitespace, so you
    // will only get one word at a time rather than an entire line

This might help you From the C11 Standard (draft) on the qsort() function (emphases by me):
code :
int compare(const void* a, const void* b) {
  return strlen((char*)a) - strlen((char*)b);
int compare(const void * pv1, const void * pv2) {
  char * ps1 = *(char **) pv1;
  char * ps2 = *(char **) pv2;

  return strlen(ps1) - strlen(ps2);
int compare(const void * pv1, const void * pv2) {
  char ** ppc1 = pv1;
  char ** ppc2 = pv2;

  return strlen(*ppc1) - strlen(*ppc2);
   strings[i] = malloc(sizeof(char));
   strings[i] = malloc(1);
   strings[i] = malloc(N + 1); /* 1+ for the 0-terminator. */
  scanf("%s", strings[i]);
  scanf("%20s", strings[i]);

will help you strlen(hello) is the wrong string length, respectively it's complete garbage at that time since hello isn't even initialized yet.
The expression strlen(stringOne) + strlen(stringTwo) + 1 which you had used to allocate the target buffer would had been the appropriate length to pass.

I hope this helps you . The short and useless summary is: you're #includeing string.h; use it!
