    I can't believe it......I found a way to multiply 2 pointers!!!!!!

    Code:
    /* Demonstrates inline and multiplying pointers */
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    
    inline int ptrmult(int x, int y)
    {
     int *ptr, *scd;
     ptr= &x;
     scd= &y;
     return (*ptr)*(*scd);
    }
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
     int a, b, c;
     cout << "Input a number: ";
      cin >> a;
     cout << "Input a number: ";
      cin >> b;
    
     c= ptrmult(a, b);
     cout << a << " + " << b << "= " << c;
     Sleep(c*a*b+100);
    
     cin.get();
     return 0;
    }
    
    
    
    /*
    multiplying pointers with just one function
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
     int x, y;
     cin >> x >> y;
     int *pointer, *second;
     pointer=&x;
     second= &y;
     cout << (*pointer)*(*second);
    
    
     cin.get();
     return 0;
    }
    
    amazing huh?

    To make this topic have a point, rate my coding. Tell me if I could use a better method of performing such an amazing task.

    I agree that there's nothing special 'bout it. What you actually doing is multiplying to integers and as far as i know, doing that is not one of the hardest tasks. (actually not even a task at all !)
