    what exactly are the differences in the following??
    like to create a array of XX objects is
    XX obj[3];

    What does it mean by the following?
    1. creating an array of XX object pointers
    2. dynamic array of XX objects
    3.dynamic array of XX object pointers

    statement
    XX obj[3];
    mens that memory is reserved in comile time not run time. So you cannot change length of array in runtime;

    Code:
    XX *obj =new XX[3];
    means that memory is allocated in run time so you can ask user to enter number of objcets for example N and reserve memory for N objects on heap 
    XX *obj =new XX[N];
    dynamic array of XX object pointers
    is something like this:
    Code:
    XX **obj =new XX*[N];

    Dynamic allocation implies allocating/deallocating memory at runtime.
