/* This class implements a simple cache. A cache object is instantiated
with the number of items it is to hold. An item is a pointer to an
object derived from CBaseObject (helps reduce memory leaks). The cache
can then have objects added to it and removed from it. The cache size
is fixed at construction time and may therefore run out or be flooded.
If it runs out it returns a NULL pointer, if it fills up it also returns
a NULL pointer instead of a pointer to the object just inserted */
/* Making these classes inherit from CBaseObject does nothing for their
functionality but it allows us to check there are no memory leaks */
/* WARNING Be very careful when using this class, what it lets you do is
store and retrieve objects so that you can minimise object creation
which in turns improves efficiency. However the object you store is
exactly the same as the object you get back which means that it short
circuits the constructor initialisation phase. This means any class
variables the object has (eg pointers) are highly likely to be invalid.
Therefore ensure you reinitialise the object before using it again */

an array of pointers, each of which points to a CBaseObject derived

m_iUsed defines the number of places filled with objects at any time.
We fill the array of pointers from the start (ie m_ppObjects[0] first)
and then only add and remove objects from the end position, so in this
respect the array of object pointers should be treated as a stack */
