How to Delete Dynamically Allocated Multidimensional Arrays

You can allocate a multidimensional array using new as follows:

class A
  int j;
//...constructor, destructor, etc.

void func()
 int m;
 A (*pa)[2][2]=new A[2][2][2]; // three dimensional array
 m=pa[0][0][0].j; // access member of array's first element
 m=pa[1][1][1].j; // access member of array's last element

The function func() allocates a three-dimensional array of A objects called pa. How do you delete a dynamically-allocated multidimensional array? It's simple: no matter how many dimensions the array has, you always use delete[] to destroy it, as follows:

delete[] pa;
