pointer to pointer as function parameter

Hi Experts,

A function prototype is given as below.  I need to use this to get the Network list.
Result_t Query::queryNetworkList(Network **list, int& size) const

Open in new window

How can I iterate through this list and find all the Network items.
I am thinking something like below.. but not sure how to deal with the list.
Thanks,
Network *list;
int size = 0;
Query q;
q->queryNetworkList(&list, size);
for( int i = 0; i < size; i++ )
{
 ....

}

Open in new window

Query::queryNetworkList() should be returning the list pointer (that's why the method takes a **pointer - to allow it to modify and return the value into the caller's list pointer). It also returns the size of the Network List.

++list increments the list pointer by one element (not 1 byte) in the NetworkList array.
