Example text

As with pointers to other types, *sp refers to the structure that sp is pointing at. In this example, *sp is a synonym for child. gender The brackets around *sp are required since . has higher precedence than *. age). age is a pointer; since it is not, it will produce an error. Pointers to structures occur so frequently in C that a special alternative notation is provided. If sp is pointing to a structure of type Student, then we can use -> (a minus sign followed by a greater-than sign) to specify a field, as follows: sp -> name refers to the ‘name’ field, sp -> age refers to the ‘age’ field, and sp -> gender refers to the ‘gender’ field, 61 Chapter 3 ■ Pointers We will see many examples of the use of pointers to structures in the next chapter.

H> int main() { void test(int); int n = 14; 1 Getting the value pointed to is called dereferencing the pointer. 53 Chapter 3 ■ Pointers printf("%d\n", n); test(n); printf("%d\n", n); } //end main // before calling test //after return from test void test(int a) { a = a + 6; printf("%d\n", a); } //end test // within test When run, this program will print the following: 14 20 14 (before calling test) (within test) (after return from test) At the end, the value of n is still 14. Clearly, test was unable to change the value of n.
