    Dynamic Function Pointer

    Hi

    A quick question, how to allocate a dynamic array of function pointers? I am getting a syntax error when trying to. The following code might give a better understanding:

    Code:
    double func(const double); // function declaration
    
    double (**FuncPtr) (const double); // dynamic array
    
    FuncPtr = new double (*)(const double)[MAX]; // syntax error

    We haven't inherited Earth from our parents; instead we have borrowed her from our children - old Indian saying.

    If you don't want to use typedef:
    Code:
    FuncPtr = new (double (*[100])(const double));

    Thanks Sang-drax. By the way, very nice game you got there. I like the graphics.

    Are you using DX or regular win GDI?
