Say I have this question and its answers

C++ convert int and string to char*..

And then this question is asked

C++ converting an int to an array of chars?

Would it make sense to alter the title of the first question to

How to convert int and string to char* or a char array in C++

Then it's easier to refer to the second question.

I'm not asking about deleting the question. Rather just altering the title. –  Preet Sangha Sep 28 '10 at 11:19

IMO no. If there is an exact duplicated is because the OP didn't have the words in mind to search the other question. Keeping both formats would provide more ways to get on the same result.
