[edit] Definition


Structs are datatypes, able to contain variables of all datatypes.

To address a member of a struct, use the "." operator: <structname>.<membername>. Like all datatypes, one can have a whole range of them, as displayed in the example.

[edit] Example

Structs can be handy for many aspects of programming.

[edit] Multiple identical data groups

Struct Ship[9]
    int x;
    int y;
    int speed;
    int angle;

There are 10 'Ship's now. The data can be accessed like:

Ship[8].angle = 0;

[edit] Grouping of variables

This is for clarity and to avoid colliding variable names.

Struct Fileinfo
    String name;
    String path;

Note that the struct fileinfo is a predefined global variable.

This example can also be done by defining your own type.

[edit] Pre-assigning values to a struct

You can pre-assign values to a single-level struct by putting them after the members, like so:

Struct example
     Integer X = 100;
     Integer Y = 50;

You can pre-assign values to a struct array by putting them in pairs after the End tag, like so:

Struct Example[3]
    Integer X;
    Integer Y;
End = 10, 10,
      20, 20,
      30, 30,
      40, 40;
