    Pointers *Point?

    Ok, what the heck are pointers, why are they used, how can they help me, how do you use them, what direction do they point in, all these questions run through my mind when i hear pointers in c++.......

    Pointers, like gravity, always point down.

    Two tutorials, one from this very site.

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

    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.
