    How do i assign pointers to specific array values?

    Am i assigning the pointers incorrectly?
    for (c = 0; c < 5; c++)

    printf("%d\n", array[c]);
    *p1 == array[0];
    *p2 == array[1];
    *p3 == array[2];
    *p4 == array[3];
    *p5 == array[4];
    printf("\n");
    printf("%d\n", *p1);
    printf("%d\n", *p2);
    printf("%d\n", *p3);
    printf("%d\n", *p4);
    printf("%d\n", *p5);
    return 0;

    = is assignment, == is comparison.

    Also this is probably wrong conceptually... you can do *px = array[c] if px is already storing an address.

    What would probably work best is

    px = &array[c];
    where x is some pointer number like p1, and c is some array subscript.
