newbie-functions vs reference
Hello, well I've been making my way through tutorials and such, and everything seems pretty clear so far except for one thing-pointers and references. Am i just tired? are they really as complicated as they sound? do they sort them selves out later? i heard stuff about "linked-lists"?
I also wondering, when do i use a pointer? So far the only uses i know for it are pointing to a variable, pointing to an object, and using a pointer to point to a variable from a function. SO do i always use a pointer? sometimes? i assume good programmers DO use them? any comments/opinions would be appreciated
