Pointers, useful? Please explain!
Hello, I have been reading trough the first C++ tutorials, tried to program and learn how it is, and so far so good, but what I can't understand, is the USE of pointers, I understand how to set a pointer, read it and pass it on etc. but what is the use? I need some real life examples. How would they be usefull in game programming for example?
I have programmed in PHP and GML(GameMaker Language) and I have never had anny use for pointers. Now, I don't say they are not usefull, I just want to know what they are usefull for ^^
Thanks in advance! ^_^
