deleting array elements seperately


is it possible to replace a

delete[] myarray;

call with a

for(int i = 0; i < arraySize; i++) {
    delete myarray[i];

Thanks in advance!
As far as I know, no. Every new[] must be followed by a delete[], and every new must be followed by a delete.
Typically, this is what you'd use STL containers for.
If you add a reference operator to myarray[i], like delete &myarray[i], the code seems to be fine.
