A crash course in pointers

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

OK, so a crash course on pointers. This will be a long email. But it’s at least a month worth of classes crushed into a couple of pages.

A pointer is a variable literally pointing to an address (any address) in memory.

for instance:

int nVar = 12; //This is a regular variable!
int * pVar = 0; //This is a pointer variable!

(more…)

Need to start posting more often!

Ok, so between school, work, other projects and getting some gaming done, I just haven’t been able to post anything.

I shall soon, when I get my ruby project going!
