Can arrays and structs be used in the declarations of class attributes? if so are they combined or redifined? i was told in C++ you no longer need to use typedef name for a structure or use the struct keyword. any help on this would be appreciated! thanks in advance

Yes they can.  Say you have a structure:

struct struct1
{
   char abc[10];
   int def;
   long ghi;
};


Now in a class declaration below:

class class1
{
   char string1[20];
   struct1 aStructvar;
}

Here we have a class called class1 that consists of a character array and another struct.  You reference the above array as follows:

class1 classVar;
classVar.struct1.abc[0] = '\0';
classVar.struct1.def = 150;
classVar.struct1.ghi = 233124;
class1.string1[0] = '\0';

in c++ you don't use structs you use class

it's alot better with some intersting and usefull opetions

but ofcourse you can use arrays and structs in class's you even can make class's in other class's

do you want to how anything else

so what you are saying is that arrays and structs are combined or are they redefined in the declarations of class attributes?

what i'm saying is you can and may use them together but if you use classes you don't need structs
