Whew! I got so caught up in the Programmers = God debate that I forgot what I came here to ask 2 hours ago: type* matrixPtr = new type[1][2]; gives an error. How do I create these monstrosities?

Thanks CWizard.

A summary of that thread:

// Pointer-to-array requires pointer-to-pointer type!

some_type **whatever = new some_type*[dim1_size];

for(i = 0; i < dim1_size; i++)
whatever[i] = new some_type[dim2_size];

// Just be careful afterwards when deleting this ...

// I can't swear to the accuracy, but here's what I would do:

for(i = 0; i < dim1_size; i++)
delete[] whatever[i];

delete[] whatever;
