Composite Data Types
ViviFire supplies many elementary data types for you to use. But you can also assemble items of different types to make composite data types such as structures, arrays, and classes. You can assemble composite data types from elementary types and from different composite types. For example, you can define an array of structures, or a structure with array members.
A composite type is different from the type(s) of its components.
For example, an array of
Int does not have the type
You write an array type as the element type followed by an asterisk and the number of dimensions.
String*1 is an array with one dimension, and
Boolean*2 has two dimensions.
