9. Creating structured data types
What you will learn
Programs can work with many different types of data, including integers, floating-point numbers, and strings of text. They can also create arrays of a particular data type. However, the data that programs need to work with is often more complex than single values. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to build structured data types that can bring together a number of related items into a single variable. Knowing how to do this lets you design data storage that matches the specific needs of an application.
