    Angry Passing Array 2 Func...

    I have forgotten how to pass an array to a function! I need to send an array to a function to perform a test on it's contents. Any help would be much appreciated!

    You should pass it by reference

    Returntype FunctionName( ArrayElementtype* Name );

    Example

    int Array[4];

    void Search( int* Blah ); // you can also use []

    or, if you know that it has to be of a certain length, then do

    void Search( int (&Blah)[4] );

    You'd call either by just doing

    Search( Array );

    In the function's body, you'd access the array with the same syntax as if you were directly working with the array.

    you need to pass the array by reference using something like this
    function_name(&array_name[])

    im pretty sure this is right
    C++ can hurt.
