    Pointers (need help)

    Hi Guys
    This is my first posting and i need ur help
    My Boss told me to tell him about "Use" Pointers but according to my knowledge there is no pointer or any type of pointer like that( It may be possible that my boss want to make fun of me in front of others so please help) .
    Please let me know diff. types of pointer and also if there is any pointer type by name "USE"

    Never heard of a "Use" pointer, but "use" is of course not a forbidden name in C or C++.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    I have never heard of "use pointers", but perhaps you misheard your boss (e.g., you are being asked to use pointers), or your boss is talking about pointers to objects of a type named "use".

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Probably your boss wants you to make use of pointers in your code.
