Array of vectors containing integers

Hello experts,

I would like to have 2D array containing lists of integers.

I tried this one:

std::vector<int> linesGrid [64, 48];

but it does not compile.

What do I do wrong?

Thank you

If you want to do that with vectors, you'll need a definition that looks somewhat like this :
std::vector<std::vector<int> > linesGrid(64, std::vector<int>(48));

WOW!

I am trying to get my head around it.

1. std::vector<std::vector<int>> linesGrid;

It my understanding: linesGrid is the list of (list of integers)

2. linesGrid(64, std::vector<int>(48));

In my understanding it looks like a function call with two variables where the second one is again a function???

I am so confused here... :(

More accurately : a vector of vectors of ints.

It's calling the constructor of std::vector, where the first argument is the amount of items you want in the vector, and the second argument is how those items should be initialized.

the point is that std::vector is a 1d-array. to get a 2d-array you do a vector of row vectors.

actually it is not really a grid like int grid[64][48]  cause each row vector individually could grow or shrink. but if you do an initialisation like infinity08 showed and don't do a push_back or erase on any of the row vectors you pretty well have the same behavior than with a fixed-sized int 2d-array.
