    Hilarious Pointer Tutorial

    I don't know how many people here have seen this, but I thought it was quite amusing myself!

    http://cslibrary.stanford.edu/104/

    Check language that applies (I watched C++ one).

    "Pointer fun? Oh goody!"

    Watch what happens kids when you dereference a pointer that doesn't point to anything! (Well...Maybe your head and arms don't...Never mind, watch the flick!)

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Eh? Fair play, there are some wrong, wrong people out there. (joke)

    Mind you, I know a guy who'd benefit from this video as he's learning C++ right now and has yet to come across the wonder of the humble pointer.

    Your internet prowess is legendary. Why the hell do people do this? Accept that the internet is populated by a lot of people, and if you frequent more than one forum you'll likely see things more than once. Deal with it and shut up about it.

    Actually govt, I saw it a long time ago as well, on these forums.

    However, it was so long ago you can no longer find the old post, which means this post is just fine here so everyone who hasn't seen it can.

    Yah it's a great video, I remember seeing the link to it here a while back, must've been a couple years ago. Every now and then I refer people to it if I stumble upon another pointer question.
