Array question?

closed account (LN3RX9L8)
When you declare an array for example:

const int size=4;
int array[size];

what is the correct word to use to describe the [] in the array??

well in the line:
int array[size];
the [] just indicates it is an array and the value inside the square brackets is the size of the array.

When used like this:
the [] represents the index into the array.
Indices (plural of index).
Or if you mean the symbols themselves


So in array[5]

5 is the number of indices, array[4] is a reference to it's fourth index, and the numbers are surrounded by brackets.
