    Question Buffer Overload

    How can I test for overload on an array?

    Below is what I'm currently using. I basically declare a 15 integer array, and want to issue an overload error if it exceeds the available memory allocation.

    int SomeArray[15];
    cout<<"You have exceeded you memory allocation";
    I'm assuming this should work, but it doesn't.

    The easiest way is to learn the STL vector class. Alternatively you could write a stripped down version of the vector class, or the equivalent thereof using flags and counters.
