So now it's easier to see that a is a one-dime,sional array and b a 2-dimensional array. So Carol had it right.
PS: In the K&B Book is stated that 'int a' is the same as 'int a'. This is not exactly correct. Although you will get the same result in this simple case, the difference is, that when you put the brackets before the name (next to the declared type), they will count for any variable you declare on that line. If you put the brackets after the name, they will only count for that specific variable. [ February 15, 2007: Message edited by: Jesse Custer ]
