sorry for posting this quite redundant question, but I think I really didn't get the point and I wonder if this problem really equals the "how to delete an array of pointers" one.
-BTW, I want to try this with traditional arrays, not the boost::vector class--
So here comes my use case, and then the problem. I want to estimate an array of values. In each iteration, a new estimation is made and a persistent pointer is moved to the address of the new estimation. Of course, I want to free the prior estimation from memory before the new one is assigned to the pointer.
float **pp = new float[N];
//Do some calculations with pp[i]
float *p_New = new float[N];
//Do some calculations with p_New[i]
//Replace old array associated with pp with the new one
pp = p_New;
1) Is this the best way to realize this use-case (a persistent pointer referencing a new array after each iteration)?
2) Why does delete *pp not work? Dereferencing pp should give me the address of the array it is pointing to, right?
Any answers are highly appreciated. Thanks!
