After doing some more homework, I found the 'new' keyword.

This allowed me do designate dynamic memory to keep me from having to know the size of the array beforehand.
anyway.. here's the fixed snippet.

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{

    char *pA;
    pA = new char   ;
    int counter = 0;
    gets(pA);
    while(*pA != '\0')
    {
        *pA++;
        counter++;
    }
    cout << "\n\n" << counter << " charcters.";
    pA=0;               // Clear the pointer
    delete pA;          // de-allocate the pointer.
    return 0;
}


btw -- why do some header files have an exetensions and some not like iostream. I have to take the ".h" off for vc++ but leave it on in gcc....
