: : How do you handle a deep copy of the list of trucks?
: Why is this an issue? You shouldn't be making a copy of that anyway. I can (barely) see a scenario where I'd pass it by const reference, but I can't see copying it under any circumstances.
Because _you_ said, and I loosely quote:
"There are three things you must have if you use dynamic memory: A copy constructor, an assignment operator, and a destructor."
Since my truck depot class uses dynamic memory I was trying to conform to your "words from on high" and got stumped on this part :)
