I am writing a program that checks for the correct matching of parantheses. I am using the "gets" to get the parantheses, and put them in an array. The array is a char and I am trying to use a pointer to access the address or array subscript. with the array being char and the address actually being ints how can I set up the pointer to get the position in the array. pointers are not my strong suit. I have read the tutorial on this site. any help would be greatly apreciated.
