An array system for C++ Free Stuff

Abstract

This article presents a system for C++ arrays. This system is superior to the arrays that are built into the C and C++ languages in that arrays can be resized dynamically at runtime and also they are safer to use through the use of assertions to guard against array out of bounds errors.

1. Using Arrays

See the file t-array.cc for examples of using arrays. Multi-dimensional arrays are also supported. See the source code file t-array.cc for an example of their use. Like C arrays, the indexing is opposite from normal use. Here is how to index into a two-dimensional array:

a->get_element_at(y)->get_element_at(x)

Note that deletions from multi-dimensional arrays is non-trivial. See the source code file for an example of deleting from multi-dimensional arrays. When using multi-dimensional arrays, typedefs are useful: The following line of code defines an alias for a two-dimensional array of ints.

typedef Array<Array<int> > Array_Array_Int

In the above example, care must be taken to put spaces between the closing >'s.

2. The Source Code

  • Array system classes
  • array.hh
  • Tester Module:
  • t-array.cc
