Using RWops here makes it more complicated but still not correct. When
you declare an array int xyz[5] you have the elements xyz[0]..xyz[4].
You are writing to xyz[5], so you are writing in space that is probably
not belonging to you and in every case is not in your array. Go fetch a
C/C++ book.

Where is this declaration? It will still be shadowed by the local
declaration in the function.
