I went to the array page, and "I think" I am doing the declation ok.

Help.

Should be char[][char[]] Proj; Proj["Quote"] = r"Quotes\"; Proj["Language"] = r"Deliverables\"; Proj["Technical"] = r"Analysis\"; char[][] pKeys = Proj.keys;

SO-No-vah! Thanks. Perhaps Walter may want to put a small example on the Array page. :-) All there is there is the int[char[]]. I knew it was something simple, but yet, complex! Again, muchas gracias. jose

You can help by adding such an example to the 'comments' page attached to that page -- if there isn't one there already. (Look for the button labeled "Comments" near the top of the page). --bb

An entry in bugzilla will probably be noticed and acted by walter on quite a bit faster. An entry in the wiki will be visible to the rest of the world faster. So.. I'd suggest doing both if you have the drive, or bugzilla if you want the docs to ever be updated. Later, Brad

Associative arrays are declared by (value)[(key)]. Going by this, your declaration puts value == char and key == char[]. What you want is value == char[], so try type: char[][char[]]. Brian Byrne

alias char[] String; I started doing it a while ago for all my projects :). Brian Byrne
