hi all,

Is there any way to declare the size of an array during the execution of the program?i mean not using e.g define 10,but to be prompt to give the array's size(using cin maybe?)?

A piece of code would be great!

Here's how you do it.
     int nSize;
     scanf( "%d", &nSize );
     int* pInts = (int*)malloc( nSize * sizeof(int) );

     pInts[0] = 1;
     pInts[1] = 2;

Then, when you are done, free up the memory:
     free( pInts );

Hope That Helps,
Dex*
