    one simple question

    I was reading some article about c functions and i don't know c++. I came to an operator that looked like two colons ::, and i couldn't find it in my book about C. Is it a C++ operator?

    thanks

    yes its called the scope resolution operator - used with classes
    and is not part of C syntax
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();


    Goodies:
    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference


    My Gear:
    OS - Windows XP
    IDE - MS Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition


    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI

    Yes. I don't remember its name but it is used when defining elements of a class (includes static variables) or to access elements of a namespace. I think it's called the scope resolution operator or something like this.
