[C] pointer to array
« on: September 28, 2016, 03:16:33 am »
In C, you declare a variable like this :
Code: [Select]
unsigned int numberOfGen1Glitches = 9001;
And an array like this :
Code: [Select]
unsigned int partyTime[42] = {1, 3, 3, 7};

Okay. When I ask GDB about "&partyTime", I get "unsigned int(*)[42] (stuff)".
But this does NOT work :
Code: [Select]
unsigned int(*) lelzNotWorking[42] = &partyTime;
GCC throws an error about parentheses. Placing a space before the parentheses doesn't work either.

How do I declare a variable that has type "pointer to unsigned int array" ?
How do I declare an array of pointers to arrays ? (An array of variables with the above type)

Thanks in advance !

(Note :
Code: [Select]
unsigned int array[3];
unsigned int** pArray = &array;
gives a "assignment from incompatible pointer type" when compiled with GCC, which I use.)

Code: [Select]
int a, b, c, d;

// An array of pointers
int *stuff[4] = {&a, &b, &c, &d};
// A pointer to an array of pointers
int *(*ptr_to_stuff)[4] = &stuff;
// An array of pointers to arrays
int *(*array_of_ptr_to_stuff[2])[4] = {&stuff, &stuff};

int main(){
    // Will print the exact same thing
    printf("%p\n", &a);
    printf("%p\n", stuff[0]);
    printf("%p\n", (*ptr_to_stuff)[0]);
    printf("%p\n", (*array_of_ptr_to_stuff[1])[0]);
}
