C pointer to objects

0 votes

Is it always necessary in C++ to use the new keyword to initialise a reference to an object?

Can you please have this as well:

MyClass *myclass;

myclass->DoSomething();

I assumed this was a pointer allocated on the stack rather than the heap, but because objects are typically heap-allocated, I believe my idea is probably incorrect?

Please provide guidance.

Explanation of function pointers

It's a little perplexing. Function type and pointer to function type are distinct kinds (no more similar than int and pointer to int).  However, in virtually all cases, a function type decays to a reference to a function type.  In this context, rotting roughly refers to conversion (there is a difference between type conversion and decaying, but you are probably not interested in it right now). What matters is that practically every time you use a function type, you end up with a reference to the function type.  But take note of the nearly - almost every time is not always! And there are rare circumstances where it does not. typedef void(functionPtr)(int); functionPtr fun = function; This code tries to clone one function to another (not the pointer! the function!)  However, this is not feasible since functions in C++ cannot be copied.  The compiler does not let this, and I'm surprised you got it compiled (you say you got linker errors?) Now for the code: typedef void(functionPtr)(int); functionPtr function; function(5); function does ...READ MORE
