I have a doubt.

I think it's a question.

If I have 2 structures and one is parent of other , ie the child
structure is present in the parent one . And if the child structure is
declared as dynamic array in the parent , will it be possible to pass
the parent structure thru network using sockets onto other application
running on different system provided the API is known to both the
sender and the receiver.

For Ex:

struct Child
a: Int;
b: float;

struct parent
c : Int;
d : array of Child;(dynamic array)

If I make it static array, I will be able to pass it, but wat if it is

It is all possible, the only difference is *how* you "pass" it. And
since C++ does not define what a "socket" is, or how one is used, there
is no clear answer to your /question/ in C++ terms. However, you might
find reading about "serialisation" useful.
