Simple quick question. I'm revamping my Vector class and put in an anonymous union like this:
union
{
    float index[2];
    float x, y;
};
Question is do I need a copy constructor still? Before I just had the "index" array and needed one but what happens now that its a union?

No, you do not. It'll get copied just fine.

Your original method should have copied automatically as well, if all it had was a raw array.

An anonymous union inside a struct is illegal. The union needs to be named.

Oh Fruny, where art though, with your crazy static member pointers?
