Hey can someone point me to a tutorial on auto pointers? I think it may be useful for my project but I''m not a 100% on what they exactly are.

I can think of any number of things that could be defined by the term "auto pointer": C++ std::auto_ptr<> class, smart pointer classes in general, the Charles Daily semi-automatic shotgun, pointers to memory with automatic storage, pointers with automatic storage, etc. Any of these sound close to what you are interested in?

Nice. Just for kicks:
auto char *s = "Whoa, this is an auto pointer!";
