How can you set a function that returns an array type?
I tried for example : int[ ] check( int [ ] ) { .... }
but it doesn't work..
Can I get around it with using typedef?
Is there a way of getting around it without using typedef?

 thank you,

How about:


int *check(int a)
{
  static int b[10];
  b[0] = a;
  return(b)
}

main()
{
  int *a;
  a = check(2);
  printf("%d\n", a[0]);
}

Or am I misunderstanding your question.

You can return a pointer to an array (or to the first element of the array)
You can also return a structure containg an array.
