Hi, I''ve been programming about 9 months, and im starting to do DirectX programming, but the thing that still bothers me is Pointers. I understand what they do, and why to use them, but I have the hardest time actually using them in my code.... Are there any articles that explain Pointers thoroughly?

If you understand what they do and why to use them then you should be able to actually use them. Is there a specific problem you are having?

Im pretty much a newbie, but I think this might be your problem:

You know how to use pointers and understand what they do. This doesn''t mean they have to be used everywhere. If you feel you need to use a pointer I''m sure you''ll know how to use it.

Or maybe it''s lack of experience. You''re not sure when and where to use a pointer, but if someone told you, you''d know how to use one.

Hmm.. If you can''t understand this it''s probably because I explained it bad. If so, just ignore me.
