    Need help with an exercise from the book "C++ Primer"

    The problem is stated as such:
    "Write a program that defines a vector of pointers to strings. Read the vector, printing each string and its corresponding size."

    I just want to know how I go would about setting such a vector up and filling it with strings.
    Thanks!

    I'm new to this forum myself, but in most forums Please-do-my-homework-for-me questions are frowned upon. You should at the very least show us your shot at solving your assignment. If you get stuck with a specific problem we'll be happy to help you, but you have to show some effort.

    You're right, I should have given the problem my attention because I got the answer I was looking for.
    Thanks!

    And in only 20 minutes - impressive.

    Did it look like Exercise 5.18:
    Write a program that defines a vector of pointers to strings. Read the vector, printing each string and its corresponding size.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
