1) deleting each pointer from element 0 to n-1. 2) deleting each pointer from element n-1 to 0. 3) delete each pointer from element 1 to n-1 and then deleting the list.

1) deleting each pointer from element 0 to n-1.

2) deleting each pointer from element n-1 to 0.

Either two is fine, and don''t forget to delete the list. However, like Magmai said, std::list is better.

so i would delete each element in the list.
then i delete the list by doing

1) delete list;

or

2) delete[] list;

im guessing this wouldnt change anything, so im guessing #2.
