I was about to write an answer when i saw this. Yes, zero length char arrays at the end of a struct appeared to be quite common in C programming some years (or decades, rather) ago. I haven't seen it in any C++ code ever, although it probably works the same. Whatever you wish to achieve, there's probably a better solution available in C++ syntax. Usually, std::string is the go to solution here.

That said, yes, it must be char [], not char* [], otherwise it doesn't make any sense at all.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
