...You're right...just looked it up, and I'm hosed. I'll update when I figure something out...

Incidentally, doing it my way would probably require more RAM than anyone on this forum has.

lol@ a 9d array. You only need 1d cos remember you can use the index and the value at each index to represent things. E.g. the array index reps the stat name and the value reps the stat value.

...well crap, I could just use nine, 1-d arrays, couldn't I? It'd be less efficient than "data structures" I guess, but I still haven't looked those up.

You could. Or you could use 1 2D array, and use the first dimension to seperate characters, and the second dimension to seperate stats within a character.

But data structures are powerful and you should learn to use them.

Define one as:
code:
struct MyStruct{
int number;
int anothernumber;
.
.
.
};
[/QUOTE], then declare a variable of type MyStruct:

code:
MyStruct data;
[/QUOTE]Then you can access its member fields via the dot notation, and do pretty much anything you could do with regular variables.

code:
int temp;
temp=data.number;
data.number=data.anothernumber;
data.anothernumber=temp;

you should learn how to use the standard template library vectors, lists and maps. Maps are the only tricky ones to use. The main difference is that they can change size at run-time whereas arrays can't.

e.g. a vector of ints:

code:
#include <vector>

vector<int> stats;

\\adding stuff:

stats.push_back(5);

\\then you can go through it by creating an iterator:

vector<int>::iterator it

\\and loop through:

for(it=stats.begin(); it != stats.end(); it++)
{
int i = *it;

}
[/QUOTE]can't remember other operations but I think you can erase like:

stats.erase(it); where it is the iterator pointing to a position in the vector
