 Pointers...What good are they?

Hi Peter,

I am sending this to you in case you can forward it to clcm.  I am
at a machine that will not let me reply to newsgroups.

There is a good on-line tutorial to pointers compiled by Ted Jensen.
I found it quite helpful in getting a *little* more of a grip on
pointers.  He includes one or two code snippets for exploring the
behavior of pointers in a number of contexts.  The url is:

        http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~tjensen/ptr/pointers.htm

The pointers thread in itself is a good tutorial as well.  

I agree with the comment that they tend to be obscure until the light
comes on -- unfortunately, there's no telling whether the lightbulb is
a 25 watt or 250 watt bulb. :)  (I fear my own is still closer to the
former than the latter).  Thanks to all the contributors for an
interesting lesson.
