    using struct

    If I have say 200 players and I want to use a struct for each one to hold various details about them including name etc can I give a struct an int as a name eg 'struct 1' and then use a loop to search through them for the name I am looking for eg 'for (x=1;x<+200;x++) if (x.name =="Smith").

    Use an array or some container like a std::vector.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
