    Nope. Eventually you'll run out of memory.

    Use the std::string class and it will grow to meet your needs, provided they're reasonable needs.

    For other data types and for custom functionality you can look into linked lists and other data structures. They don't set an express limit, but like Thantos said you're still limited by physical resources.
