    Memory

    When one declares a pointer a new int or something, is the HD used or ram? If I wanted to write to the HD, how would I do it? A file?

    When people talk of memory, they usually talk of RAM. I've never heard disk storage referred to as memory besides by a computer illiterate.

    If you wanted to "write" to the hard disk, yeah you'd usually write to a file.

    BTW, future posts like this should probably be directed to one of the programming boards, not the general discussions board.

    Sorry, I thought GD would be more appropriate because it refers to all languages.

    It seems reasonable to use the GD. Perhaps there should be a computer architecture board?
    I was born; I shall die. Between those two events there is life. I don't know why, and I don't question it; I merely live.

    Sorry, I thought CProg.com had a General Programming board. Guess not...
