Randomly generated numbers and arrays

Randomly generated numbers and arrays

(OP)
Simple question - I have a piece of code to generate 3 random numbers and an array containing 3 elements. How can I pass the numbers into the elements of the array? Code would be useful here thanks!

RE: Randomly generated numbers and arrays

int x; // your random number
int y[3]; // your array

// generate your randon number here
.
.
.

int Inc = 0; // for array

y[Inc] = x;
Inc++;

// generate next randon number here
.
.
.

y[Inc] = x;
Inc++;

// generate next randon number here
.
.
.

y[Inc] = x;
Inc++;

    Of course you really should put bound checks on Inc. If this isn't what you are looking for, give us some more details.

2ffat, the information you gave was what I needed thankyou, but during the number generation what do I need to put to assign the value to the 'x' variable?
Thanks for your help!
