Re: Errors with ->*

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

1) a .* xptr = 3 ;
   Above line's syntax is wrong.
 Should be
        *a.xptr = 3;

2) Also declare the structure member variables as
         int *xptr, *yptr ; (otherwise yptr will be of type int, not of int*)

3)  aptr ->* xptr = 5 ;
      is also of wrong syntax.
      Should be
                 *aptr->xptr = 5 ;

Which is equivalent to
               *(aptr->xptr) = 5;

the above code DOES NOT mean this one :

             (*aptr)->xptr   // this one dereference aptr first, then
does nothing to xptr
