free delete crash?

i have
GLubyte *ImageData;

then in the deconstructor i have
free(ImageData); but it crashes any ideas?

And from my knowledge i believe
free is for vars and
delete is for class’s
yet i have seen them interchanged, does anyone know the exact definitions, that someone like me would understand

Try asking this beginner C++ question in a more appropriate forum.

Unfortunately this is way offtopic, but I can give you some hints:

free() should be used together with malloc()
delete should be used with new

And you should learn the basics of C++ before diving straight into the middle of the programming sea.

FAQ you!
