Compiler Warning (level 4) C4295

' array ' : array is too small to include a terminating null character

An array was initialized but the last character in the array is not a null; accessing the array may produce unexpected results.

The following sample generates C4295:

// C4295.c
// compile with: /W4

int main() {
   char a[3] = "abc";   // C4295
