Re: [vox-tech] C++ problem


I have to wonder why you are declaring a variable in the
constructor. If you declare a variable in the constructor,
its scope will only survive the life of the constructor
and then the memory got from the heap will fall on the floor.
Put your variable declaration in the class. 

You should probably read Brude Eckel's "Thinking in C++". All
the code samples in his book should compile using gcc or
g++ in the case of C++.
