Is that what you mean?

I don't exactly understand what do you mean by "have a space in a 2 dimensional integer array".

But if you want to insert a ' ' char to an integer array you can insert it's ascii value.
Or you can use Collection's array (uses objects) and insert space char as it is.

what i meant was that for example i have 2 enter the following array int a[4][4].the element of row 4 and column 1 is a space how do i enter space in this array.
1  4  15  7
8  10  2  11
14  3  6  13
12  9  5

Let me see, you have a matrix of numbers 4x4, where the bottom  right number is a space?
(under 13, right to 5)
you can't just insert char of space into integer array.
What you can do.
I can give you 2 solution(using INT array):

1)tag the "cell" where you need this space to appear with another number you never use. (like
0,-1,99 etc')
and on your other array manipulations check for this tag.
2)store the ascii values of the numbers and not numbers them self, this way you can insert space.
