In Topic: use of pointers

Yesterday, 05:50 PM

I also remember pointers clicking more in my mind when I thought them as addresses or directions for an object.

I thought about data types as e.g. boxes, and pointers as a paper with the directions to the box on it.

int myInt;

--> an int sized box with myInt written on it. int sized because it needs to be big enough to store whatever int I want to put in it.


int *myIntPointer = &myInt;

--> a piece of paper saying "the box in the kitchen on the top shelf".


Somewhat unrelated, hovering the "pointers" tag of this thread gives some fairly entertaining suggestions.

In Topic: Very new, where should I start?

You should start with the FAQ, if you haven't already.


Other than that it depends on what you want to do. Certain languages/frameworks/libraries might be better suited for certain things.

Try deleting/renaming the SOLUTIONNAME.suo file.


Other than that, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13375961/visual-studio-2012-intellisense-sometimes-disappearing-broken seems to have a few suggestions (1 of which you mentioned, but several others you didn't).

There is literally a poster here who has a Web site about creating games with Java.  Helpful and very much the person you need.  I'm blanking on the username and can't find the Web address.
