1. Pointers

I have one question
if I have *X[2]
(*X)[2]
what do those mean?
Also, what would a poosible decleration of X be?

Thanks a lot, Im new to C, and am not familiar with pointers

2. Code:
```#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
int a,b,c,*x[3] = { &a, &b, &c };

a = 10;
b = 20;
c = 30;

return printf( "%d vs %d\n", *x[2], (*x)[2] );
}```
The first gives you the value contained in the array, the second dereferences the pointer first and as an end result you get the address of the second pointer rather than its contents.

Quzah.

3. Code:
```#include <stdio.h>

int main ( void ) {
int a = 1, b = 2, c = 3;    // 3 ints
int d[3] = { 10, 11, 12 };  // an array of 3 ints
int *x[3] = { &a, &b, &c }; // 3 pointers to 3 ints
int (*y)[3] = &d;           // one pointer to an array of 3 ints

printf( "%d %d %d\n", a, b, c );
printf( "%d %d %d\n", d[0], d[1], d[2] );
printf( "%d %d %d\n", *x[0], *x[1], *x[2] );
printf( "%d %d %d\n", (*y)[0], (*y)[1], (*y)[2] );
return 0;
}```
