    Pointers, like gravity, always point down.

    Two tutorials, one from this very site.

    http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/lesson6.html
    http://carbon.cudenver.edu/~tgibson/tutorial/ptr.html

    And a more general link to google, in case those were insufficient.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=c%2B%...=Google+Search

    If you have specific questions, like struggling with some concept in a tutorial, ask a question... but don't expect posters to reinvent the wheel with a comprehensive tutorial that you seem to be in search for.
