So I'm in the process of learning C++. I have a small problem though.
I find it difficult at times to understand the point of pointers. Perhaps it's simply the textbook I am using doesn't provide a good explanation or a good example. I just can't think of any reason I'd want to use them in a program I was creating myself.
Now I'm sure there must be plenty of reasons out there as I've seen them in examples of other code so I'm wondering if anyone has a good resource to teach this aspect of programming or could provide an example problem that requires a solution using pointers?
Thanks for the help!
