Static arrays


Static arrays in C++ are declared siimilar as in Delphi:

TArray2 = array [1..10] of Char
->
typedef char [ 10 ] TArray2


While in Delphi the lower bound and the upper bound have to be defined, in C++ arrays are always zero based, i.e. the undermost index is 0 and the topmost index is the size of the array minus 1.
Up to the version 1.2.4. of Delphi2Cpp it was the strategy to size the C++ arrays as the upper bound of the original Delphi array plus one. This strategy was changed with version 1.2.5. From now on the size of the C++ array is determined by the number of elements, i.e. that genuine zero based arrays are used.

The upper bound of an array is calculated by means of a macro:


#define HIGH(x) (sizeof(x)/sizeof(x[0]))-1
