Defining an Array of Strings

Defining an Array of Strings

Question:
I have 20 predefined strings that I want to put into an array of strings. Here is my idea:

#include static std::string array[20];

If I do just this, I receive no errors. However. any attempt to initialize the values of the array results in errors. Am I going about this completely wrong?

What is the proper way to define an array of strings and initialize them in C++?

Answer:
You can initialize the array like this:

static std::string array[2] = {"hello", "world"};

Or if you prefer a more explicit form, do this:

using std::string;static string array[2] = { string("hello"),       string("world")};
