    What do you think the advantages are.... lets see what you've come up with first...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    In theory you can have an infinite long queue. If you use an array, you have to define a max (of course you could reallocate memory for it, but that's another thing ).
