Memory addresses of pointers
Can someone explain in plain English please...?
The question is "How would you access the memory address for a pointer: int *p ?"
I thought that &p would give the memory address of the pointer itself, *p. However that answer is wrong, the correct answer is p.
I thought that using %p and then p would give the memory address of the item that *p is pointing to, not the memory address of *p itself.
Am I understanding this backwards or is it the wording of the question that has me mixed up?
I also think the correct answer should be &p.
