Can you implement a jagged array in C/C++?

In computer science, a jagged array, also known as a ragged array, is an array of arrays of which the member arrays can be of different lengths,[1] producing rows of jagged edges when visualized as output. In contrast, two-dimensional arrays are always rectangular[2] so jagged arrays should not be confused with multidimensional arrays, but the former is often used to emulate the latter.

// C program to show the // implementation of Jagged Arrays #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> int main() { int row0[3] = { 1, 3, 8 }; int row1[2] = { 1, 2 }; int row2[2] = {9,0}; int row3[5] = {10,11,4,20,50}; int row4[1] = {30}; int* jagged[5] = { row0, row1,row2, row3, row4 }; // Array to hold the size of each row int Size[5] = { 3, 2, 2, 5,1 }, k = 0; // To display elements of Jagged array for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) { // pointer to hold the address of the row int* ptr = jagged[i]; for (int j = 0; j < Size[k]; j++) { printf("%d ", *ptr); // move the pointer to the // next element in the row ptr++; } printf("n"); k++; // move the pointer to the next row jagged[i]++; } return 0; }
