[c++]smart pointers

Recommended Posts

Hy. if i have :
NodePtr* obj1 = new NodePtr();
NodePtr* obj2 = new NodePtr();
NodePtr* obj3 = new NodePtr();
*obj1 = new Node();
*obj2 = new Node();
*obj3 = new Node();

while(1 to end of meshes)
{
   functionx(obj1, obj2, obj3)
  
   MaterialPtr mat= new Material;
   mat.diffuse =  xxx;
   mat.specular = xxx;

   obj1.Material = mat;
}

MaterialPtr mat have the while scope , and when i exit the while the obj1.Material is reset , is correct? How manage the life of smartpointer? How i can create and use at the obj1.Material out of the scope of while? I must use a MaterialPtr*??? What is a good solution? thanks.

outside the while() loop, obj1.Material (I assume it is also a smart pointer) will have a valid pointer to the last material created (with a ref counter of 1). The materials that are constructed should not leak out.
