DDSurface list

Recommended Posts

In my program I''ll use a manager to maintain a list of directdrawsurfaces, which than can be used as textures. Because these textures will be accesed all the time, I want to avoid to extra overhead that using the STL gives. Another reason for this is that I''m not very familiar with the STL, and lack proper documentation. So my question is: will it be good practice to just create a static sized array, that can contain a max of like 500 textures? CDDSurface* m_lstSurfs[500]; Since this maximum will probably never be reached...and it provides O(1) access time, deletion and O(n) insertion... (because it has to search for the first NULL-pointer in the list) I think it''s a rather good solution. But I''m not really sure if this isn''t just a cheap hack. Thanks in advance for your opinions, Tristan
