    Array Query

    I have created an array which holds info on records - but i need to be able to search thru the records to find one of them

    also i need it to be able to just search for just the first couple of letters, so that a list of the results can be stored in another array.

    "I'd like to by a... FOR LOOP please!"

    Is your list sorted or unsorted? If it's unsorted, just use a for() loop and go through the list. If it's sorted, use a binary search. In either case, if you're comparing strings, then, oddly enough, you want the strcmp or strncmp function.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
