how do you initialize values for a two dimensional array?
I know that arrays would be:
var x : array 1 .. 3 of int := init (3,5,7)
but what about 2d arrays?

heres the example from help
Quote:
Example
var mensNames : array 1 .. 3 of string :=
init ( "Tom", "Dick", "Harry" )
put mensNames ( 2 ) % This outputs Dick
var names : array 1 .. 2, 1 .. 3 of string :=
init ( "Tom", "Dick", "Harry",
"Alice", "Barbara", "Cathy")
put names ( 2, 1 ) % This outputs Alice


it should explain it for you

once again, read the tutorial on the arrays. It covers EVERYTHING you need to know, including explanation of multidimentional arrays.

Some array tricks - 2D arrays
Here's something that I used to scare people with right before grade10 compsci exam... "you need to know 2D arrays". People were freaking out... I donno why

Anyway, the point is that each of our little "boxes" in an array can contain a row of boxes of its own. So for each box in a row, we get another row, forming columns. This way we just created a grid (also called matrix).

it's decleared as
Code:

var grid:array 1..10, 1..5 of int



10 rows, 5 columns. Though that depends how you look at it and how you set up your forloops. I had a huge argument with my teacher of what value gous first - row or column. I dont remember what she said, but in my opinion it doesnt matter - as long as you know

:= init(variable1, variable2, ... , variableN)

or just read from the file and save values right in the array
