    Garbage Collection

    Hi all,

    Im looking for a good tutorial that can explain when and where you should deal with global variables and pointers so they can be freed correctly.

    Can anyone recommend one?

    Thanks

    The RAII idioim tends to be preferred to garbage collection in C++.

    You could read Implementing the 'Resource Acquisition is Initialization' Idiom by Danny Kalev, or simply search the Web.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
