delete [] str;//error here


That was in relation to the point I mentioned. i.e. to allocate sufficient amount of memory. Well if you are using strcpy for that purpose strcpy will put a NULL char just after the end of the memory block. And when you try to delete such pointers it will result in memory damaged error message.

strcpy was used here just to regenerate that issue.

Be really really afraid to dynamically allocate memory.


Why?


Yeah, use it as a last resort. For eg: using standard stl classes can avoid most of the issues.

Note: I didn't say not to use it but instead to be afraid. Sometimes being afraid is good. Smile | :)
