Definition

<datatype> <array name>[<upperlimit>] [= <values>]

Arrays are datatypes, consisting of a range of variables of the same type. The range is 0..upperlimit, meaning there are upperlimit+1 elements in the array.

The initializing values start at the first (0th) element and go up from there (see example).

Example

Mutliple ints

int lottery[9]; // an array of 10 ints

Use them like:

lottery[0] = 1;
lottery[5] = 35;
lottery[1] = lottery[5];

Multiple types

Consider, using Type:

Type _point;
    float x;
    float y;
End
_point point[2] = 1,2,// an array of 3 points at positions (1,2), (3,4) and (5,6)
                  3,4,
                  5,6;

Use them like:

point[0].x = 0;
point[1].y = 54.2;
point[2].x = point[0].x;
point[1].x = point[2].y = 23.2;

Multiple structs
