    Why should you even move the pointer? Use the array notation instead.

    if it's an array then
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main() {
        char board[9] = { 'X', 'X', 'O', 'O', 'O', 'X', '0', 'X', '0' };
        char *pboard = &board[0];
        for ( ; pboard != &board[8]; pboard++ ) {
              printf("%c\n", *pboard);
        }
        return 0;
    }

    You mean:

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main() {
        char board[9] = { 'X', 'X', 'O', 'O', 'O', 'X', '0', 'X', '0' };
        char *pboard = &board[0];
        for ( ; pboard != &board[9]; pboard++ ) {
              printf("%c\n", *pboard);
        }
        return 0;
    }

    xD my bad

    Code:
    for ( ; pboard <= &board[8]; pboard++ ) {
    doesn't really matter which method though. thanks for pointing it out
