Array of fixed-length BitArrays
I'm in trouble with a BitArray.
The goal is to simulate a stack of 8 80bit BitArrays, numbered from 0 to 7.
I just need to be able to access them by index, and so I think a simple array will be enough for me.
When initialising a BitArray object, I need to specify the number of bits it will contain, which gives me
BitArray test = new BitArray(80);
How can I do an Array of it, knowing I need to specify the length value?
I've tried several things, like
BitArray stack = new BitArray(80);
but I always get an error when trying to give it the length...
Thanks in advance
Unfortunately, the framework doesn't appear to have a "canonical" array-initialization pattern, as far as I know.
One way, using LINQ, would be:
var stack = Enumerable.Range(0, 8) .Select(i => new BitArray(80)) .ToArray();
var stack = Enumerable.Repeat<Func<BitArray>>( () => new BitArray(80), 8) .Select(f => f()) .ToArray();
BitArray stack = new BitArray; for(int i = 0; i < stack.Length; i++) stack[i] = new BitArray(80);
