    May you inform me what i should do so that the following:
    #include <iostream>
    class class_a
    	int x;
    	int func(){return 1;}
    class class_b:public class_a
    int func(){return 2;}
    	int x;
    int main()
    class_a **table=new class_a*[5];
    class_b *node=new class_b();
    int x=table[0]->func();
    return 0;
    prints "2" instead of "1"?

    func() should be a virtual function. You should also have virtual destructors for both classes. You should also delete/delete[] properly.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Does this work even when there is only a declaration (extern class_a ** table)
    in the file that i call the function?
