Files and types and dynamic arrays
Here is a chunk of me type code;
//record storing details of bowlers for match stats
type Bowlinfo = record
ID : integer;
firstname : string; //needed incase bowler leaves leaque(deleted);
surname : string; //needed incase bowler leaves leaque(deleted);
gamescores : array[1..6] of integer;
//record to store match details and stats
type MatchInfo = record
ID1 : integer;
team1name : string; //needed incase team leaves league(deleted)
team1 : array[1..6] of bowlinfo; //max of 6 bowlers per team per match
ID2 : Integer;
team2name : string; //needed incase team leaves league(deleted)
team2 : array[1..6] of bowlinfo; //max of 6 bowlers per team per match
var matchfile : matchinfo;
My question is that if i want to have a dynamic array in either of the types the code will not compile as the file type is not definite... this is limiting me to make choices now on the maximum number of bowelers per game and max number of games each bowler can play.
Could anyone suggest an alternate method for me to have a file storing match details with dynamic arrays for team1 , team2 and gamescores?
