You can't add slots to an array. It's impossible. You can create a new array with 5 more slots however, and copy in the contents. Although I hope an instructor didn't tell you to do this because it is a bad idea - instead, double the size of the array.


say the array has an index of 0
then wen a person wants to add a say .. 27 to the first slot u cant just update it and add a slot?
cuz that wat i need to do =/


Once you create an array, you cannot add more indexes to it. If you need a bigger array, you'd have to do what I said in my first post. Just go read about arrays on google.
