I think it is a little more like:


struct tank
{
...
}

tank *t[6];

t[0]->mMember;
t[1]->mMember;


Hope that helps. :)

Edit: My apologies as the above is actually wrong as pointed out. I forgot to use the * in my code. Fixed now. :)

lets clean that up abit and look at it.


struct Thing
{
int a;
//more member..
};

Thing *tp[10]; //this is an array of Pointers to Thing's

Thing t[10]; //this is an array of Thing's

//two ways to dereference tp
tp[1]->a = 1;
*tp[1].a = 1;

//assigning to a member of a non-pointer
t[1].a = 1;

//pointing the array at a new array
tp = t;

//making a pointer in the array point to a Thing
Thing st;

tp[2] = &st;


hope I didnt confuse ya or f-that up too bad ;D

JWind is incorrect I believe. -> is for dereferencing pointer's to structs.
. is for dereferencing plain old structs.

ballack, Yes you can...
JWindback, you should use '.' instead of '->' if you intend no to use pointers !!
