Ask your doubts we will clear that.

Multidimensional array:
Two dimensional array is an array of array.
three dimensional array is an array of array of array.
Sounds scary na!!!

int [][] array=new int[2][2];

array[0]------> will point to another array of size 2.
and another array will be like:
array[0][0],array[0][1]

same applies for array[1];
array[1][0], array[1][1];

declaring and initializing:
int [][] array={{1,2},{2}};
here
array[0]={1,2};
and
array[1]={2};

ask your doubts.

Hi,


The Sun tutorials have a small section on multidimensional arrays:

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/java/nutsandbolts/arrays.html


Other sources:


http://math.hws.edu/eck/cs124/javanotes3/c8/s5.html

http://www.unix.com.ua/orelly/java-ent/jnut/ch02_09.htm


However, the K&B book does cover multidimensional arrays in detail. It might be worth getting that book:
