    Token pasting

    Would someone like to explain how this works, and what to do, bearing only this fact in mind: I heard the term 5 minutes, and all I know is that it can help me with my program. Basically i need to create a class, and give it a name that the program would generate by way of a character string.

    You've lost the plot. Token pasting occurs even before the code is compiled so it wont help you.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Like a macro, it is performed before everything. It pastes two items (tokens) together. From then on, the variable name can be used just as if it had been declared.
