I am creating a BaseArray: 
c4d_misc::BaseArray<Vector> MyVectorArray

If I try to pass it to a function, the compiler throws an error: 
'c4d_misc::BaseArray<T>::BaseArray' : cannot access private member declared in class 'c4d_misc::BaseArray<T>'

I can pass a GeDynamicArray to a function without problems, but I would like to use BaseArray for its speed.

So basically, how do I pass a BaseArray to a function.

No hint on passing a BaseArray to a function?

	c4d_misc::BaseArray<Vector> MyVectorArray;
	for (int i=0; i<10; i++) MyVectorArray[i] = Vector(0,i,0);
	GePrint(RealToString(MyVectorArray[5].y));   			         //5  This works!!!
	printVectorBaseArray(MyVectorArray);			            	//DOES NOT WORK....BaseArray is Inaccessible!!!
void printVectorBaseArray(c4d_misc::BaseArray<Vector> inputVectorArray)

It protects you from passing the array by value, which is what you are doing. The function call
would require to copy the whole array. Pass it as a pointer or reference (usually preferred).

void printVectorBaseArray(c4d_misc::BaseArray<Vector> **&** inputVectorArray)

It works. Thanks Niklas!

But please do not forget about  const  if the array do NOT need to be modified inside function.

void printVectorBaseArray( **const** c4d_misc::BaseArray<Vector> **&** inputVectorArray)

That's a good tip, thanks Remo!
