Im currently exploring structures.

is it possible to create a string in a structure using C++?
this wont compile due to that problem, any ideas.?

I don't really code in C++, but shouldn't it be:



You can change the size limit of FirstName to whatever.

headers can be a right pain sometimes - the compiler never tells you if your missing one

Well how's the compiler supposed to know if you meant to include one? lol. The only way it would do that is by searching every single header file on the HDD and checking to see if the invalid class/struct/function/etc is in it, which would take the compiler ages to do.

C++ is on my list of things to tackle sometime soon. I know tons of programming languages, even low level coding, but for some reason I neglected C/C++.

Would it have worked if you used my suggestion? I'm still curious even though other people gave the right answer.

I explored your method torrey and it didnt seem to work, perhaps its just my syntax or devc++ being painfull.

Also: I forgot to ask.

theres an include called <cstring>, can anyone elaborate the differences between this one and the standard include <string>

<string> holds various string functions for C - <CString> holds various string functions for C++

Whoops, wrong way round TCA.

string - C++ String object
cstring - C string functions in the std namespace
string.h - C string functions in the global namespace
