    book with a good pointer section

    Hi,

    I am currently at the stage with my learning of C that I understand the basic data control, branching and functions, but I am still a little hazy on pointers. I am after a book / resource with a good pointer section, which goes into some detail which will be useful in developing practical programs.

    I already have K&R2 and Dietel & Deitel.

    Thanks
    Dave

    This is a pretty good start. It gives a good explanation of how pointers work and includes the use of the * and & operators. It's not overly detailed, but it's a good starting point.

    It's a start. Good illustration figures, but it uses confusion concepts with casting in the beginning when the reader have absolutely no idea what it is.
