Global scope and passing pointer
I'm trying to debug some code and have narrowed it down to my non-understanding of passing pointers. I've reviewed the forums but still haven't figured it out.
something like this:
But what's happening is that when I step into the objectContainer class functions using gdb and query the contents of "dev" they are changed. And of course when I step back into the global scope they haven't.
getVMEhandle(dev); // get the device handle using library call
objectContainer Device1(dev); // make an object that will contain the handle
The result is that none of the containerized hardware calls will not work until I can pass the pointer correctly through the several layers of scope.
Looking for insight,
