C++11 Array Iteration

I’ve just gotten to play with the C++11 ‘‘for’’ extensions for the first time. It’s really cool, especially the ability to iterate over a plain old array. Dig this code from my current hobby project:

```C++ int Driver::getSpeedBonus(int speed) { struct speedbonus { int speed; int bonus; };

struct speedbonus benefits[] = {
{200, 10},
{140, 9},
{100, 8},
{60, 7},
{40, 6},
{30, 5},
{20, 4},
{12, 3},
{10, 2},
{0, 0}
};

for(struct speedbonus b : benefits) {
    if (speed >= b.speed) {
        return b.bonus;
    }
}

} ```

It’s a nice feature that other languages have enjoyed for years now. Of course, I’m also a little behind on my C++ learning.
