    Adding More Array Elements?

    On PHP, you can add more elements to your array with different methods. My preferred method is:

    PHP Code:
    person[1] = "James";
    person[2] = "Andy";

    person[] = "Nick"//Notice there is no number inside the brackets. That's how I add elements to my arrays on PHP. 
    Can I do something similar with C++? Or how can I add more elements to my arrays?

    Easy... use a std::vector instead of an array.

    Closest thing to a PHP associative array in C++ is the Standard Template Library's map container. However, even that requires an actual key, so cpjust is right; for the example you've provided, an STL vector would probably make more sense:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <vector>
    #include <string>
    int main()
        std::vector<std::string> myArray;
        for (unsigned int i = 0; i < myArray.size(); ++i)
            std::cout << "Element " << i << ": " << myArray[i] << std::endl;
        return 0;
