C this pointer

What distinguishes this pointer from others?

Pointers, as far as I understand, point to heap memory.

Does this imply that objects are always constructed in heap if a pointer to them exists?

Is it possible to steal this pointer in the move function Object() { [native code] } or move assignment?

Pointer variables are used to store the address of variable.

Syntax

Type *pointer;

Initialization

Type *pointer;
Pointer=variable name;

The following are the main distinctions between pointers and reference parameters:

Pointers are used to hold the address of a variable, whereas references are used to refer to an existing variable by another name.

A null value cannot be assigned to a reference, although a pointer can.

Pass by value can be used to refer to a reference variable, whereas pass by reference can be used to refer to a pointer.

A reference must be initialized at the time of declaration, but a pointer does not.

A reference has the same memory location as the original variable, but it also occupies some stack space, whereas a pointer has its own memory address and stack size.

Why is Turbo C++ showing this error in DOSBox on my Mac?

Your installation must be defective!  I have a Mac, and I'm typing this on it while using TurboC++.  Consider uninstalling and then reinstalling the programme. Download the package in the same way as you would a.dmg programme from the internet.  (For example, drag and drop the programme into the Applications folder)  Ascertain that your Applications folder is global to your system.  This is what I mean: When in Finder, select the "GO" option from the top menu bar. From the drop down option, choose "Computer." In the newly opened window, click on your hard disc. There is a "Applications" folder there.  That's where you should put TurboC++. Go to Launchpad, and start Turbo C++. ...READ MORE

*this vs this in C++

This is a pointer, and *this is a pointer that has been dereferenced. If you had a function that returned this, it would be a pointer to the current object, but a function that returned *this would be a "clone" of the current object, created on the stack unless you defined the method's return type to be a reference. A small application that demonstrates the difference between working with copies and working with references: #include <iostream> class Foo { public: ...READ MORE
