a stupid question

    Hi, the following doesn't compile.

    using namespace std;
    class tile_type {
    vector<vector<int> > grid(3, vector<int> (3));

    int main()
    tile_type k;

    return 0;

    The compiler (g++) says:

    tile.cpp:5: invalid data member initialization
    tile.cpp:5: (use `=' to initialize static data members)
    make: *** [tile] Error 1

    I am trying to make an object with an array, so that I can access
    k.grid[][]. I am using Dietel & Dietel's book, and though I looked it
    over, I couldn't find a right way of doing this type of thing. I hope
    you can tell me the correct method.

    thanking you,

    You can only initialize non-static members in a constructor
    initializer list. So you want:

    vector<vector<int> > grid;
    tile_type(): grid(3, vector<int>(3))
    // comma delimit initializers for other members
    // and base classes
