The reason they can't make multi-dimensional flexible arrays in my opinion is that flexible is just a keyword, it is not a type like arrays are.
code:
type Arr : array 1 .. 10 of int             %works
type Arr : flexible array 1 .. 10 of int    %doesn't

So that's why this can't work, flexible is just a keyword.
code:
var x : flexible array 0 .. 1 of flexible array 1 .. 10 of int  %doesn't work

If the syntax commonly used for a multidimensional flexible array was implemented, there would be no way to distinguish between a flexible array of static arrays and a flexible array of flexible arrays.
code:
var x : flexible array 1 .. 5, 1 .. 5 of int

And infact that does give you a flexible array of static arrays, you can change the first set of bounds all you want.

Any chance a mod would be so kind as to inquire to Dr. Holt about the possible release of the PC class's required system files? (PC.ParallelPut, etc). For that matter, does anyone have these files, and if so may I have them?

Its true! you cant compile into .exe's "bad header" is the error it spits out.

Maybe this should be a new topic but HoltSoft very recently posted a pdf of two of its Turing books as well as Ready to Program.

Sweet, I was thinking about using a Turing book to look at the language. Will be a good break from C++.

Hmm, does anyone know what happened to the link for downloading Turing 4.1.1a? When I click it I get the "HTTP 404 Not Found". I downloaded it at school when you guys first posted it, but I only bothered to get it at home now...

Thanks Mackie, the one you posted works. For some reason I get an error from the other one.

Holtsoft has changed the name from 4.1.1a to 4.1.1 so the file's location also changed
Latest from compsci.ca/blog: Tony's programming blog. DWITE - a programming contest.

Just for everyone's information, Holtsoft has also uploaded the installer for RTP, as well as a couple of textbooks (in PDF of course). These can all be found here
