C Programming

This is why I hate coding in c. The simplest program in the world;

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
    char *string = '\0';
    strcpy(string, "my string"):

Core dumps. If I change the definition of 'string' to char string[255]; everything is hunky dory.

I don't know why, but I'm bloody well going to find out.
