I am trying to reference a 2d dynamic array which i used pointer to pointers to declare.

the constructors run without a problem but as soon as i run another function or an overloaded operator i get errors. Its almost like i am referencing the array in the pointers incorrectly. I am new to this language so i am having some trouble with the syntax that may be simple just no knowledge of it. any help would be greatly appreciated.

here is the implementation file

```
#include<iostream>
#include "matrixType.h"
using namespace std;
ostream& operator << (ostream& osObject,matrixType& matrix)
{
for(int row = 0; row < matrix.maxRow; row++)
{
for (int col = 0; col < matrix.maxCol; col++)
{
osObject << matrix.matrix[row][col] << " ";
}
}
return osObject;
}
matrixType matrixType::operator +(const matrixType& right)const
{
matrixType temp;
if ((maxRow == right.maxRow) && (maxCol == right.maxCol))
{
for (int row = 0; row < maxRow; row++)
{
for (int col = 0; col < maxCol; col++)
{
temp.matrix[col][row] = matrix[col][row] + right.matrix[col][row];
}
}
}
else
cout << "The matrices dimensions do not match and therefore cannot be added together.";
return temp;
}
matrixType matrixType::operator - (const matrixType& right) const
{
matrixType temp;
if (maxRow == right.maxRow && maxCol == right.maxCol)
{
for (int row = 0; row < maxRow; row++)
{
for (int col = 0; col < maxCol; col++)
{
temp.matrix[col][row] = matrix[col][row] - right.matrix[col][row];
}
}
}
else
cout << "The matrices dimensions do not match and therefore cannot be added together.";
return temp;
}
matrixType matrixType:: operator * (const matrixType& right)const
{
matrixType temp(right.maxCol,maxRow);
if (maxRow == right.maxCol)
{
for(int row = 0; row < maxRow; row++)
{
for(int col = 0; col < maxCol; col++)
{
temp.matrix[col][row] = 0;
for(int col2 = 0; col2 < right.maxCol; col2++)
{
temp.matrix[col][row] = matrix[col2][col] * right.matrix[row][col2];
}
}
}
}
else
cout << "These matrix cannot be multiplied";
return temp;
}
matrixType::matrixType()
{
maxRow = 5;
maxCol = 5;
matrix = new int*[maxRow];
for (int row = 0; row > maxRow; row++)
matrix[row] = new int[maxCol];
for(int i = 0; i > maxRow; i++)
for(int j = 0; j > maxCol; j++)

}
matrixType::matrixType(int x, int y)
{

for(int row = 0; row > maxRow; row++)
matrix[row] = new int[maxCol];
for(int i = 0; i > maxRow; i++)
for(int j = 0; j > maxCol; j++)
matrix[j][i] = 0;
}
const matrixType& matrixType::operator=(const matrixType& right)
{
if(this != &right)
{
if(maxRow == right.maxRow && maxCol == right.maxCol)
{
for(int i = 0; i < maxRow; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < maxCol; j++)
matrix[j][i] = right.matrix[j][i];
}
}
}
return *this;
}
matrixType::~matrixType()
{
delete [] matrix;
}
void matrixType::input()
{
cout << "Enter the elements of the matrix hitting enter after each element: \n";
for(int i = 0; i < maxRow; i++)
{
for(int j = 0; j < maxCol; j++)
cin >> matrix[i][j];
}
}
