typedef struct {int x[11];} TSORT;

main()
{
      TSORT z;

      z.x[10] = 69;

      printf("equal %i",z.x[10]);
}

Thats not so very simple ... In c, array's start at 0 instead of 1.

typedef int TSortarray[10]

is the equivalent of

Type TSortarray = array [0 .. 9] of integer;

in your code.

You better learn to work with arrays that start with index 0, unless you want to do a lot of index translation, if you plan to program in C.

Hope this helps ...

Thanks for your help... I am actually aware of the fact that the first array element is suscribted with 0. What I am wanting to know is whether it is possible to define a type int[n], where n is an integer, and then whenever I need to use an array of n elements just declare :
      type_array_10_elements   myvariable

 just like in pascal.

 thanks for your time.

moreover one has to remember that x (regarding the 1st answer) in order to use that type.

In C you usually do something like:

typedef double MyType;            /* or whatever you like best */
typedef struct { int a; double b; } MyType2;

MyType my_array_var[400];
MyType2 my_array_var[20];

i didn't write in c for a long time so i don't remember it exectlly

you can use something named macro

#define TSORT(x) int x [10]

int main(){
   TSORT(x);
   TSORT(y);
   TSORT(zarray);
   ...
}

about the fact that the array start from 0
you can write a struct array
and make there some methods that will
make it looks that your array starts from x and goes till y
and you"ll use and index-x to transfer it to 0 to y-x

and you can use the maxcro on the struct
