Compiler Warning (level 1) C4154

deletion of an array expression; conversion to pointer supplied

You cannot use delete on an array, so the compiler converts the array to a pointer.

// C4154.cpp
// compile with: /c /W1
int main() {
   int array[ 10 ];
   delete array;   // C4154 can't delete stack object

   int *parray2 = new int [10];
   int (&array2)[10] = (int(&)[10]) parray2;
   delete [] array2;   // C4154

   // try the following line instead
   delete [] &array2;
}
