C++/pointers

Question
sir my question is what is pointer and why pointer is used and what is syntax of pointer.

Answer
Hello,
I would recommend visiting this site for an explanation of what a pointer is: http://www.intap.net/~drw/cpp/cpp08_01.htm

As for how to use a pointer (as well as another definition of what a pointer is), I would recommend this website:
http://www.csci.csusb.edu/dick/cs202/pointers.html

I hope this helps. Their explanations are far better than what I could give.

Best Of Luck,
Alan

Expertise

Having problems with any basic or intermediate parts of C++? I can answer those questions for you using simple English. I have been taking C++ in school for a couple years, so I still remember what it was like to be a beginner (especially with C++, which is a difficult language)!

Experience

I have a C++ web page that discuses the basics of C++. The address is: http://www.afweb.net/complang/
