MAP[1][9]= "|G|";
MAP[1][10]= "|I|";

This is an example of an array that I built for my rpg program.

Could someone tell me how to clean this up, and or make it faster for me to type out so i can fit more things into my busy day without getting bored?

Such as:
MAP[1][]={"g","g","\0"};
I tried this out, but it doesn't seem to work.
Are there any other ways to shorten down the lines of code that I have to write.

I am currently trying to make a [32][32] Map, and I really don't want to have to write down 1000+ lines of code for a single array.

If anyone has any knowlege of somthing that I can do, please post it. Even if it has nothing to do with my topic, Knowledge is power!

Thanks anyway,
Shinedevil

The nicest solution (in terms of future flexibility), is to encode your data in either a bitmap image or a text file.

Alternatively, if you just want to initialize an array of arrays:

// made smaller (4x4) so it fits in a post neatly...
string MAP[4][4] = {
{"|I|", "|I|", "|I|", "|I|" },
{"|I|", "|I|", "|I|", "|I|" },
{"|I|", "|I|", "|I|", "|I|" },
{"|I|", "|I|", "|I|", "|I|" }
};

But you're right, you can't initialize one 'row' at a time. It has to be done all at once.

Whenever I try to do what you told me, it says" Error: Excess "
What should I do to solve this,
I happens here (",|I|" } }; <== )
What should I do to combat this problem?

Post the full line of code where you get the error.

But, it looks like you have the double quote and comma in the wrong order in that excerpt.

Also, if you have a mismatch between the number of items you say are in the array, and the number of items you actually put in the array, you'll get an error that says something along the lines of "too many initializers".
