Lecture 1 -- 1 Computer Science I - Martin Hardwick One-Dimensional Array A one-dimensional array is a list of variables, all of the same type. it can be any of the C++ data types or object types a has a declared length each variable is identified by a subscript starting with 0 and  ending with length -1 each variable in the list is called an element  of the array Example: int counters[128]; An array element can be used in a program anywhere a variable can be used. e.g., 23 -45 2345 0 . . . 123 [0] [1] [2] [3] [127] counters counters[0] = 0; counters[i] = counters[i] + 1; cin >> counters[j]; if (counters[i-2] > 0) { . . .};

Lecture 1 -- 2 Computer Science I - Martin Hardwick For loops and arrays // Initialize counters to 0 for (int k=0; k<128; k++) { counters[k] = 0; } As always, counter variables should be initialized to 0 before you start counting. In this case, all 128 elements of the array must be initialized to 0 The easiest way to do this is with a for loop In general, you will find for loops very useful when working with arrays. Note again that the subscript of an array element can be an int variable or an arbitrary expression (as long as it evaluations to an int).
Lecture 1 -- 3 Computer Science I - Martin Hardwick Program to initialize an array #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int grades[100];  int i, count;  for (i=0;  i<100;  i++) {  cout << "> "; // display a prompt  cin >> grades[i];  if (grades[i] < 0)  break;  cout =<< “i = “ << I << endl count 1; cout << count << " grades were entered" << endl; for (i=0; i<count; i++) { cout << "Grade " << i << " is " <<  grades[i] << endl;  return 0;  } Goal: Get a list of grades and print them. Algorithm: Read until < 0 entered Print all the values read “break” is a statement that we can use to stop a loop early Works with both FOR and  WHILE loops Useful for the “other conditions”  that would otherwise make the  condition of the loop  unnecessarily complex
