Pointers can also be compared with zero NULL. The operation of adding two pointers, multiplication of a pointer with a constant, division of a pointer with a constant should not be performed.
Pointer to pointer A pointer to a variable is a variable that stores address of another variable of a specific type. A pointer to pointer is a variable that stores address of a pointer variable of specific type. The following figure can make things clear The address given here are for explanation purpose. You may get different addresses on your computer. Thus address of i can be obtained also in terms of j and k as given in example program.
Also value of i can be obtained in terms of j and k. Array of pointers We have seen array of integers, array of characters.
Similarly we can also have array of pointers. Since pointers are nothing but variables which store addresses.
Array of pointers is a collection of addresses. It is array of pointer to specific data-type.
The address can be address to individual variable or address of array elements. The following program illustrates the basic concept of array of pointers.
It is pointers to integers. The next line defines integers i, j, k, l. The addresses of these integers are assigned to each array elements. In for loop, m run from 0 to 3.
