    Question Invalid type of unary '*'

    Good day!
    I'm having problems with my lab activity(which I can't find the solution), it's already graded but I have to finish it and to make it function.
    Is there something wrong with the way I reallocated space? Please help me find the solution for this.
    I have problems during compile time, it says: invalid type argument of unary '*'
    Code:
    int getInputs(int **ptr)
    {   int x, w;
    	int i=0;
    	int y=0;
    	int *pTemp;	
    	
    		
    		*ptr = malloc(sizeof(int)*10);
    		
    		do
    		{	print("enter number here:");
    			scanf("%d", &x);
    		if (i<10)	
    		{	if(x>0)
    			{	*(*ptr + i) = x;
    				i++;
    				y++;
    			}
    				else	if(x==0)
    						{	*(*ptr + i) = x;
    							i++;
    						}
    		}
    		else	
    			{	w=i++;
    				if(x>0)
    				{	
    					pTemp = realloc(ptr, sizeof (int) * 10);
    					*(*pTemp + w ) = x; // invalid type argument of unary '*'
    					y++;
    					w++;
    				}
    					else	if(x==0)
    						{	*(*pTemp + w ) = x; // invalid type argument of unary '*'
    							w++;
    						}
    			
    			}
    		}while(x>=0);
    		
    		return y;
    }
    PS.

    Change it to:
    Code:
    *(pTemp + w )

    I already changed it that way. It now says [Linker Error]:Undefined reference to print.
    1d returned 1 exit status.

    There's no "print" function in standard C. Use puts or printf.
