    Incorrect statement in the tutorial

    Hello, haven't been here in a few years, but I was just browsing through the C Tutorials and noticed that in this one: http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/c/lesson9.html people are instructed to use the new[] and delete[] operators. As far as I know, these were not introduced until C++. I think this article should be edited to use malloc() and free()

    (Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, couldn't seem to find one appropriate for it)
    "There are three kinds of people in the world...
    Those that can count and those that can't."

    That looks to have mostly been copypasta'd from http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/lesson9.html, and didn't undergo a too rigourous editing job.
