    automatic creation of structures and deleting them

    Hi all!

    How to automatically create structures (the aliens in this code are capable to muliply) and delete them? Is the only way to change the value of "number" in this code and re-define the struct part? What if Alien[55] is killed and at the same time Alien[56] and Alien[57] are multiplying?

    Code:
    some headers....
    
    int number;
    number = 100;
    
    struct alien{
     int energy;
     int health;
    }Alien[number]
    
    int main(void){
    
    ...game...
    
    }
    Thanks in advance for ideas!

    You could use a linked list. Actually a double linked list would probably be better, because it's easier to chop out random pieces if you need to.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Thanks!
    The aliens are happy now, since there's no problem with the multiplying
