    1D array of class help

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <dice.h>
    
    class Point{
    public:
    int x, y;
    };
    
    int main()
    {
    Point[] path = new Point[2];
    
    path[0].x = 1;
    path[0].y = 1;
    
    path[1].x = 3;
    path[1].y = 3;
           cout << path[0].x << " " << path[0].y << endl;
    
          system("PAUSE");
          return 0;
    }
    The above gives me a "parse error before [". How would I create a 1D class array for the Point class?

    You are trying to allocate memory for a non-pointer type. You need to do one of the following:

    Code:
    Point *path = new Point[2];
    
    // blah
    delete [] path;
    Or...
    Code:
    Point path[2];
    
    //blah..

    just think of it like a normal data type...

    Code:
    int array[5];
    and then replace with your data type

    Code:
    Point array[5];
