Array function from VBA

VBA, as used in Excel 2000 and Excel 2003, has a function called Array.
It's commonly seen in statements like the following:

Workbooks.OpenT ext Filename:=ACFil eName, _
StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlFix edWidth, FieldInfo:=Arra y(Array(0, 2), _
Array(9, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(33, 1), Array(49, 1), Array(71, 1), _
Array(75, 1), Array(89, 1), Array(113, 1), Array(117, 1), Array(135, 1))

The FieldInfo parameter is an array of arrays, and the inner arrays have
two items. (The values are column numbers and data types; for data type, 1
might mean text, 2 might mean date, etc. Don't hold me to that.)

I can't find how to convert this statement into VB.NET 2005. I have the
ExcelApp object of type Excel.Applicati on, and so far I have this:

ExcelApp.Workbo oks.OpenText(Fi lename:=ACFileN ame, _
StartRow:=1, DataType:=Excel .XlTextParsingT ype.xlFixedWidt h, _

Notice that I found how to fully qualify the xlFixedWidth constant!

Here's the doc for VBA's Array function:

Returns a Variant containing an array.



The required arglist argument is a comma-delimited list of values that are
assigned to the elements of the array contained within the Variant. If no
arguments are specified, an array of zero length is created.


Dim A As Variant
A = Array(10,20,30)
B = A(2)


How do I build the parameter list for the OpenText method?

Thanks a bunch for any help.

Hey, I was trying to figure out was it possible in C to pass the values in an array from one function to another function.

I tried return y but it didn't work

in K&R Chapter 6.3 it mentions two methods to calculate NKEYS. and points out the first one which is to terminate the list of initializers with a null pointer, then loop along keytab until the end is found is less efficient than using sizeof operator , since size of the array is completely determined at compile time. i don't quite understand this. Could anyone explain to me in detail ?

Looking for suggestions on how to handle bad words that might get passed in through $_GET variables. My first thoughts included using str_replace() to strip out such content, but then one ends up looking for characters that wrap around the stripped characters and it ends up as a recursive ordeal that fails to identify a poorly constructed $_GET variable (when someone hand-types the item into the line and makes a simple typing error).

I wrote a function foo(int arr) and its prototype is declared as foo(int arr); I modify the values of the array in the function and the values are getting modified in the main array which is passed also. I understand that this way of passing the array is by value and if the prototype is declared as foo(int *), it is by reference in which case the value if modified in the function will get reflected in the main function as well. I dont...
