Questionwhy ( const char *ptr = string literal ) works but ( const string *ptr = string literal ) doesn't ? Pin
Tarun Jha3-Apr-18 7:53
memberTarun Jha3-Apr-18 7:53 
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main(){
     const char *ptr = "tarun" ;
    //const string *name = "tarun";

    cout << name << endl ;
    return 0;
}


in the above code if i assign a string literal to a const char*
Quote:
const string *name = "tarun";

it prints the string but the same with string gives error that
Quote:
cannot convert ‘const char’ to ‘const string

so it means any string literal is a const char (which i think is a rvalue),
but it is a collection of characters, so how is it a char ? and if it is a char then why it is called string literal ?
please explain.
Thank you.
