    Question Dynamic array in Stack ?

    Is this a correct ?
    This is compiled with g++ (3.4) sucessfully.

    Code:
    int main()
    {
        int x = 12;
        char pz[x]; 
    }

    If your aim is to write standard C++, then no, that is not correct. If your aim is to use g++'s variable length array compiler extension for g++, then yes, that is correct.

    I get maybe two dozen requests for help with some sort of programming or design problem every day. Most have more sense than to send me hundreds of lines of code. If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    And if your intention was to write C99 code then it is valid. Otherwise use std::vector<char>.
