Dot is a dereference operator and used to connect the structure variable for a particular record of structure. If a function can return NULL, think about whether this is a possibility, and whether that would cause problems later in your code. Belton The hard way series are bad, the guy says stuff that wasn’t even relevant when he wrote the book and he doesn’t care about good practices.
pointers – Arrow operator (->) usage in C – Stack Overflow
Sign up using Email and Password. After declaring the struct pointer pvar, point it to the address of var. Pay attention to functions that could return NULL. A simple if ptr tests whether ptr is TRUE.
Tips You can use this check in while loops just like any other: I am currently learning C by reading a good beginner’s book called “Teach Yourself C in 21 Days” I have already learned Java and C so I am moving at a much faster pace.
It’s common practice to set newly created or newly freed pointers to NULL to make sure you programlam use this unhelpful address by accident. Set a pointer before checking for NULL. But I am not entirely sure.
C library function – memcpy()
Duncan C 92k 13 The whole mess of typedef-ing functions with all the extra parentheses would have been avoided as prlgramlama. You will end up with code like this:.
Tommy Andersen 5, 1 20 This is not true. Sometimes it’s more convenient to test for inequality instead. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Email Required, but never shown.

Rpogramlama you for your feedback! The question was specifically about C, which does not have classes or reference variables. This keeps your code clean and easy to understand, since you’ll know you’re working with pointers every time you see NULL.
