An array is not a pointer.

An array is a built-in container of variables.

A pointer is a variable that contains an address.

You cannot compare two different things.

Maybe you could expand your question a little so I could understand better.

This is the articles section. It should be moved to the forum.

Hello, I'm writing a function that updates an array. That is, given an array, change each element. The trick is this: I can't change any elements until I've processed the entire array. For example, the manner in which I update element 1 depends on several other (randomly numbered) elements in the array. So, I can't change an element until I've figured out how every element changes.

In the Brain and Denis' book "The C Programming Language" Section 5.3 "Pointes abd Arrays", a statment goes: "Any operation that can be achieved by array subscripting can also be done with pointers." Then the authors continute with "The pointer version will in general be faster ...." My question is why the pointer version would be faster? Thanks in advance!

Unforuntately, I know next to nothing about ASM and compiler construction, and while I was aware of the syntactic differences between pointers and arrays, I was not aware of this: http://udrepper.livejournal.com/13851.html (Yes, it is livejournal, but it is the journal of the glibc maintainer) I am not sure I really understand this low-level difference between pointers and arrays, and I do not have the time to learn ASM and compiler...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
