Another C question by the newb

If I want to accept a number from a user to determine how many strings I will then accept for example: 3 Bob A Mike B Charlie C How can I do that allowing the number to be variable and define the rest of the input?

I am also a C newb :) And I tried to implement this now on my own, by the time I finished you already had the answer :) I used a 2d char array though.. Coder Kitten I assume you proposed a struct to store the firstname and the letter separately, as in the example "Bob A"? https://code.sololearn.com/cf23Ci3gNpHm/?ref=app
