I've just begun C++; Looking through arrays, there's just this text in bold that I'm not totally clear about. It would be nice if someone could explain it a bit more clearly.
The following is a quote from "C++ From The Ground Up" by Herbert Schildt
Two-dimensional arrays are stored in a row-column matrix, where the first index indicates the rown and the second indicates the column. This means that when array elemets are accessed in the order in which they are actually stored in memory, the right index changes faster than the left.
