1. Another way to implement passing by reference 2. Traverse arrays 3. Manipulate dynamic storage 4. Represent relationships in data structures double a = 3.2; p -> a[3.2] b[5.1] double b = 5.1; double* p = &a; double c = a; double d = *p; double& dd = d; // this is a reference so if d = 3.2 == dd // p = b ERROR *p = b; // assign one double to another p = &b; // assign one pointer to another *p += 4; // means *p = *p + 4; p is a pointer to a double. *p is the value at that address int k = 7; int* z = &k; cout << (k * b); // 35.7 cout << (k * p); cout << (k *p); // Error!!! you can't multiply a pointer cout << (k * *p); cout << (k**p); // 50.4 cout << (*z * *p); cout << ((*z) * (*p)); cout << * z** p; double* q; //*p = 4.2 // Undefined behavior because the pointer is NOT INITIALIZED q = p; // then q is pointing to the same thing that p is pointing to double* r = &b; // r points to b which has a value *r = *p // the value of b changes to the value of a since p points to a. if (p == r)
