    vector static abstract data structure in C?

    i posted this last week but my post was a bit vague so i apologise

    what i'm looking for is any help regarding the above subject, the code has to be in strict 'C' no 'C++'

    for those who dont know what a vector data structure is(me included ), is a structure that holds a set amount of data items, were talking data here and not that maths stuff, for example


    struct datatype
    {
    char errorMessage[27];//will hold each individual message
    };

    struct vector
    {
    datatype data[10];//will store 10 error messages
    };


    i'm not sure if thats the correct way to set up a vector structure, if anyone has any ideas or tips for me i'd be well gratefull

    p.s. i dont need the entire proggie, just hints for the structure

    thanx

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. You want a structure that contains an array of strings?
    Code:
    typedef struct vector{
        char *errorMessages[10][50];
    } VECTOR;
    That will create a structure called VECTOR that contains an array of 10 pointers to arrays of 50 characters.

    Appologies if this isn't what you want.
    pointer = NULL

    to be perfectly honest i aint 100% sure, i know for a fact that when you delete one of the messages the space remains and can be filled with another message or some other data
