C++ Dynamic Memory



« Previous Tutorial Next Tutorial »


If you want to become an advance C++ programmer, then you must have to achieve good understanding on how to allocates memory at the program runtime. C++ memory is divided into the following two parts:

The new operators

Here is the general form to use the new operator to allocate the memory dynamically for any data-type

new data-type;

Here, data-type could be any built-in data type.

C++ Dynamic Memory Example

/* C++ Dynamic Memory - Example Program */

#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
void main()
{
	clrscr();
	int *pval=NULL;     // pointer initialized with NULL
	pval=new int;       // request memory for the variable
	*pval=10;
	cout<<"Value is "<<*pval;
	delete pval;
	getch();
}

Here is the sample run of the above C++ program:

c++ dynamic memory

Let's take one more example program:

/* C++ Dynamic Memory - Example Program */

#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
class A
{
	public:
		A()
		{
			cout<<"Constructor called\n";
		}
		~A()
		{
			cout<<"Destructor called\n";
		}
};
void main()
{
	clrscr();
	A *aob=new A[4];
	delete []aob;
	getch();
}

Below is the sample output of the above C++ program:
