You can use:
#define DIMENSION_1   5
#define DIMENSION_2   5

bool SomeArray[DIMENSION_1][DIMENSION_2];
or
BOOL SomeArray[DIMENSION_1][DIMENSION_2];

depending on the compiler you use

Unfortunately, bool is not available in C (only in C++) and BOOL is a synonim to int defined by including <windows.h>.

You'd probably save lots of space by using: char array[N][M];

Or if you want to save even more space:

char array[N][M/8+1]

and to reference it

result = (array[x][y/8] & (128>>y%8))>0;
