I am writing a Irc client, and you will be seeing a lot more questions like this =) but, for this one, I want to accomplish this:

declare a new dcc, what im thinking is something like dim newdcc(dcc-cnt) as new dcc-connection

and under that variable newdcc() i would like

newdcc().ip
newdcc().filename
newdcc().port
newdcc().length

how would i go about creating that type of variable ? im just looking to declare it at this point...

Declare a Structure

Public Structure DCC_Connection
        Dim ip As String
        Dim filename As String
        Dim port As Integer
        Dim length As Long
    End Structure

Then you can have the above statement

However you wil not be able to use a variable in the array Dimension i.e. dcc-cnt

So what you can do is just declare

dim newdcc() as new dcc_connection

i.e. leave the dimension empty, then later on in your program you can write

ReDim  newdcc(dcc_Cnt)

This will work
