    What's wrong ?

    What's wrong wth the following program that i keep getting compile errors like invalid type argument of unary and subscripted value is neithr array nor pointer ?

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #define SIZE 5
    
    int main()
    {
       unsigned int values[ SIZE ] = { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 };
       unsigned int vPtr;
       int i;
    
       printf( "Print values using array subscript notation:\n" );
       for ( i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ )
          printf( "values[ %d ] = %d ", i, values[ i ] );
    
       vPtr = values;
    
       printf( "\nPrint values using pointer/offset notation:\n" );
       for ( i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ )
          printf( "*( vPtr + %d ) = %d", i, *( vPtr + i ) );
    
       printf( "\nPrint values using pointer/offset notation with array name as the pointer:\n" );
       for ( i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ )
          printf( "*( values + %d ) = %d ", i, *( values + i ) );
    
       printf( "\nPrint values using pointer subscripts:\n" );
       for ( i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ )
          printf( "vPtr[ %d ] = %d", i, vPtr[ i ] );
    
       return 0;
    }
