    dynamic array of pointers?

    I have a question. Is it possible to create dynamic array of pointers?I need to create array of pointers inside of class and the array will change in size.

    Normaly i would have

    Code:
    class player
    {
      private:
      Unit *army;
    }
    where Unit is another class and then when i create array of size 2 i use

    Code:
    army = new Unit[2]
    now instead of Unit i would like *Unit how to do it?

    Of course.

    Code:
    Foo** MyPtrArray = new Foo*[5];

    Why not to use vector?
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
