OK, I now have two applications that MUST dynamically allocate a 2D array. Each is a string array. I can easily declare a huge one and wast ram, but that doens't work too well on low-end machines. Using "new" I have found to possibly be in-capable of creating such a simple array. Here's an example:
char blah; //Wasteful
blah2 = new char[itemcount]; //ERROR
Now how the !)(%&#@#_)(
am I supposed to dynamically do this? I got a reply to this mater one time that stated something about making an alias or algorithm to make a normal string long enough for all the data and then parsing it, but my engine [b]***NEEDS***[/b] a 2D array. Am I trying to do something that is impossible to do without re-writing the Windows/DOS/Unix platforms?
