Smart pointers does not works lots of time.
What is the reason?
There's a problem with this approach. There have three options for using
Option 3 is out because it requires intimate knowledge of the
different ways smart pointers can work and the uses it will be
subjected to. The poster is asking what the point of pointers is
(haha... *sees pun*) so I think it's safe to assume that neither of
these points are met.
Option 2 is better, but the lack of any standard implementation of
smart pointers (besides auto_ptr) means that generic books can't teach
it, libraries can't make good use of it, etc. Probably because of this
(and in spite of auto_ptr) I didn't know what smart pointers were
until a few days ago despite C++ programming for a couple years.
Option 1 is the most promising until you realize that the auto_ptr
doesn't behave appropriately in most circumstances. If the stardard
library had a painter with reference counting, then things wauld be in
much better shape.
