how to convert char[256] to *char

Recommended Posts

char arr[256];
// initialize array
char * ptr = arr;

C and C++ treat arrays and pointers in similar fashion. In fact, the [] operator adds the index to the base pointer and then performs a pointer dereference. ie:

ptr[n];

is equivalent to

*(ptr + n);
