Difference Between a Numeric Array and a String

Distinguish between numeric arrays and strings in this lesson.

A numeric array relies on the array length for traversal

While passing a numeric array to a function, we need to pass the base address of the array and the number of elements present in it.

While passing a string, we need to pass only the base address. This is possible because a string ends with a ‘\0’, and the function receiving the base address can iterate through the string until it encounters a ‘\0’.

functionName(arrayName, arraySize);
