[Screencast] Beginner's Introduction to Pointers in C

Pointers aren't that hard. You might find that hard to believe, but it's true! Unfortunately, the simplicity of pointers tends to get lost in poor or overly-verbose explanations. This is my attempt to present pointers in a clear, easy, and accessible manner.

This screencast answers the following question:

  • What is a pointer, and why are they important?
  • How do I declare a pointer?
  • What does it mean to 'dereference' a pointer?
  • How do I handle pointers inside a function?
