Yes

In general , any pointer you initialize with new must be deleted with delete . If you initialize an array , you must use delete[] to remove it . You do not need to remove variables that are not pointers like e.g. char Str[10000]; This is removed automatically when goes out of scope

When you call delete on an object its destructor is called giving you the chance to destroy you object correctly. So as long as you have a new and a corresponding delete for it in the correct places you won't have to worry.

Hey by the way there is a good FAQ on C++ (in case your interested) at http://www.cerfnet.com/~mpcline/c++-faq-lite/
