If you''ve null-terminated the char*, you can loop through for-style, and keep a counter, terminating the loop when you hit null.

Depends on the language, and how you''re actually calling it.

For example (valid in C, invalid in C++):

char name[4] = "Name"; /* No room for terminating null */
Func(name);

This would be non-null terminated.

However, just calling Func("Name"); should give you a null-terminated string in both C and C++.
