multi dimensial array's confused me!

Recommended Posts

I was reading in my programming book the other day and (by the way the language is basic with blitzmax) can I get some examples from some websites? I dont know why I cant get it into my head...

Take my words with a grain of salt since I am not a programmer but, you can think of an 2D array as a grid system, a matrice etc.

So you have rows and columns in that array, rather than just rows like you have in normal arrays.

In an array you would have variables indexed as 0,1,2,3,4...n, right? Now, in 2D arrays you are storing data in colums as well, so you'd have to access them by specifying their row and column together like, row 1 column 3 (which would be [0][2]).

I hope that helps a bit.

ps: your arrays can have more dimensions than 2. Like, to store a point in 3D space, you'd have a 3D array maybe.
