    Dynamically allocate a pointer?

    I am working on something to basically hold references to several objects. So the plan was something like this:

    Code:
    obj **cPList=new *obj[30];
    However I get compiler errors when I try this. Can anyone tell me how to dynamically allocate pointers?

    How about
    Code:
    obj **cPList=new obj*[30];
    Next time, post your error message(s) as well, along with which OS and compiler you're using.
    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.
