Array of structures

Question:
I have a typedef structure that holds info for employees, and an array of these structures. I need to access a part of the structure for one employee. How can I do it using the dot operator?

My structure is called employee. It hold strings of the first and last names, phone number, e-mail address, and integer office number.

I have an array, e, of employee, so how would I access the last name for the person in index i?

Answer:
Here is an example of using arrays of structures.

struct employee
{
	string name;
	int number;
	// .. any other attributes
};

employee empArray[100];

void foo ()
{
	empArray[0].name = "joe";
	empArray[0].number = 10;
}
Hope that helps.
