dynamically allocated 2d array using an array of pointers

 #include <stdio.h>   
 #include <stdlib.h>   
     
  void main()   
  {   
    int row = 5, col = 3;   
    int i, j;   
    double *ar[row]; //will be your 2d array   
   
    for(i=0; i<row; i++)  //make it into 2d array
         ar[i] = malloc(sizeof(int)*col);  //get the column number of array
   
    for(i=0; i<row; i++)  
    {  
         for(j=0; j<col; j++)  
         {  
              ar[i][j] = (i + j) * 1.0;  //filling the array element
         }  
    }  
     
    for(i=0; i<row; i++)  
    {  
         for(j=0; j<col; j++)  
         {  
          printf("[%d][%d]=%.2f ", i, j, ar[i][j]);   //print the array after filling it
         }  
         printf("\n");  
    }  
   
    //must free the memorry allocation after using it  
    for(i=0; i<row; i++)  
         free(ar[i]);      
  } 
result:
[0][0]=0.00 [0][1]=1.00 [0][2]=2.00
[1][0]=1.00 [1][1]=2.00 [1][2]=3.00
[2][0]=2.00 [2][1]=3.00 [2][2]=4.00
[3][0]=3.00 [3][1]=4.00 [3][2]=5.00
[4][0]=4.00 [4][1]=5.00 [4][2]=6.00
