digitalmars.D.learn - arrays and pointers & Tango

reply Nick B <nick.barbalich gmail.com> writes:
I would like to create a dynamic array, of say, 10 strings.

I would like to use pointers if possible, to show the relationships 
between the strings, like as follows:

a[1] to a[2]
a[1] to a[3]
a[1] to a[4]
a[1] to a[5] ......

snip
a[2] to a[3]
a[2] to a[4]
a[2] to a[5] ......

snip
a[3] to a[4]
a[3] to a[5]  etc etc.

Is this possible using Tango ?

thanks

D newbie.

In D by default strings are dynamic arrays of characters. You can also use normal C strings, with a \0 at the end, using the appropriate C string functions, but then you have to be careful when you print them, etc.
 I would like to use pointers if possible,

If this means you want to use C-like pointers to arrays of chars you can define it like this: char*[] arr; But in most situations you don't want that.

I don't understand.

I think Tango or Phobos matter little for this, but I can't be sure because I haven't understood what you want. You can also try the #d or #d.tango IRC channels, where you can ask things with more interactivity. Bye, bearophile

access it ? when are most people on the IRC channel ? thanks

Use an IRC client - for example mIRC or xchat. Search and you will find a multitude of options. Connect to irc.freenode.org, and when there join the #d.tango channel. You will find people there all day round, but European and US day/evening time is probably the most active. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource, #d.tango & #D: larsivi Dancing the Tango

I did as you suggested. I have downloaded mIRC and installed it, but when I installed it and go to #d.tango there is no one there ! This may because of the difference in time zone, living in New Zealand. This means I'm 20 hours behind california, 17 hours behind new york, 12 hours behind england, and 11 hours behind Germany. It does not make it easy. Is there any way to open a session and leave it open, so that I can at least see what is being discussed. Also, how can i verify that I am at the right place ? regards Nick B y

Make sure you connect to the FreeNode IRC network. I think mIRC picks some other network by default. Sean

I think he's talking about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ident it's not critical, it just takes a bit longer to connect to the network if they don't get a response. -Tomas

No, in fact that's probably the reason you're getting an invalid username message, it probably doesn't like signs. Just pick a nice, short, alphanumeric name, like NickBarb or something.

Or you can run Opera and type irc://irc.freenode.org The wizard will ask you for a name, mail and nick and that's all, you are in! BTW, Opera may also be used as a newsreader client, and it is very good at it. Try writing news://digitalmars.com

Or use mibbit.com, a web front end for irc. It's great if you don't want to bother downloading and installing a program which you may seldom use anyway. --bb
