Of course, Access violation, crash or undefined are all acceptable answers.

Still, I can differentiate those who think that memory is just magically there
from those who know better. At school, they learn to use "string" or CString,
but before long, they will need to know a little more of what's going on
under the hood.

I am not surprised that those who post on this forum have the proper answer.
Newbies will not. Often, I can tell the value of a candidate by watching them
recover after they realize their mistake. I ask a supplemental question such
as "where does the memory for new_title come from ?
Those that never catch on are better left to VB shops...
