Lists in C++

I have a list named CListe of objects from CEnsemble, and declared as follows:

class CListe; //forward declaration

class CEnsemble
{
...
  CListe *SCList;
...
}

class CListe
{
...
}

As you can see, there´s a list inside each element which compose the list.

I try to initialize the list inside each element in the CEnsemble´s contructor, as follows:

CEnsemble::CEnsemble(){    
   ...
   SCList->init();
}

But when I try to run the program, I get an error in this initialization:

"This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persistes...  Close/Debug/Details"

This error has nothing to do with the init method itself, since I get the error even for very simple methods.

HELP!!!!

Is that all relevant code?? The dot's indicate there is more that is not shown and from what is shown, there is nothing to tell.

At first glance (without seeing the dots) it would seem that SCList is not pointing at anything at all. But as said, there is too little code.

KangaRoo seems to have the right answer. it seems you don't allocate anything to SCList.
The member SCList is CEnsemble is a POINTER to CListe object, and not an object in itself.
Try doing something like "SCList = new CListe" before you try to run a member function of it.
The reason the code made an illegal operation is that you just tried to run a random bit of code since SCList contained meaningless junk that your code took as an object's address.
BTW it could be a good idea to use the standard naming conventions when you write code, to avoid these things. If you'd call you pointer pList for example, it would be much more obvious to you that it's just a pointer...

KangaRoo & Yaron:
if this was the error because of not allocated place in SCList then I don't think it would give such an error.
For example, in VC++ it usually says :
"...
the memory ...:... could not be read
OK to close
CANCEL to debug
"

But this is really good idea (!)
to show more code out of this program.
