Is this code correct?

Hi, I have a question about this function, I'm not sure if it's correct it works but when I add this function to loop sometimes i get this error:

Guru Meditation Error: Core 1 panic'ed (LoadProhibited). Exception was unhandled.

void led()
  String mystring;

  mystring = Firebase.getString("LED_R");
  char nowy[30];

  char *strings[6]; 
  char *ptr = NULL;

int led_r;
int led_g;
int led_b;

  byte index = 0;
   ptr = strtok(nowy, ",");  // delimiter
   while (ptr != NULL)
      strings[index] = ptr;
      ptr = strtok(NULL, ",");
   led_r = atoi(strings[0]); 
   led_g = atoi(strings[1]);
   led_b = atoi(strings[2]);


for (int i=0; i<num_led; i++){
    leds[i] = CRGB(led_r, led_g, led_b );;

Not sure if it is (solving) the problem but I would add a boundary check to the below snippet so you can not write to strings[6_or_higher].

  while (ptr != NULL)
    strings[index] = ptr;
    ptr = strtok(NULL, ",");

My guess is that the string you receive doesn't have as many commas as you expect. That would leave some of your pointers uninitialized and that would cause a crash when you go to convert them to integer values.

Try pointing them to a default string. Then, if they don't get initialized they are at least pointing to memory that you own.

  char def[] = "0";
  char *strings[6] = {def, def, def, def, def, def}; 

What do your Serial debug prints tell you (hint)?

Run the ESP Exception Decoder. Post the results.

Post your COMPLETE code. My guess is either that you're dereferencing a NULL pointer or blowing up the stack allocation for the FreeRTOS task you're running. No way to tell without complete information.
