    string arrays

    I'm trying to put together a high score system, and I want to record the player's name for the score, but I can't figure out how to make an array that can hold a string instead of a number or a single character. I can't find any good sources for arrays, so I can't even compare it to the use of arrays for integers. Can anyone tell me how or point me to a good source for learning about arrays and strings?

    Nevermind, no one has to tell me how to do it. All I had to do was add <string> to my includes, instead of <cstring>.

    Could still use a really good reference for learning these things. I wish there was a w3schools for software programming...
