    quick dumb question from a newbie (initializing arrays)

    i want to manually initialize an array where each element of the array has 4 data fields.

    class sudo{
    int num;
    int row;
    int column;
    int box;
    };

    int main(){

    example: sudo board[9][9] = ??

    what is the syntax for initializing each element? I was thinking board.num or something but that isn't right. and i can't find any examples of manually initializing an array in my books.

    basically i want to know when I call up any given element of the array (board[i][j]) how do i access the 4 different elements?

    Add a constructor to your class, initialize the arrays in the constructor.

    You can't. Not without a hack anyway. See, the members are private, so you're not allowed to write to it from outside of the class itself.
