To show: How to change the value of a pointer variable in C++ programming

 

// a program that changes the value of a pointer variable

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

 

void main(void)

{

// declare and initialize two float variables

double var1 = 58.98;

double var2 = 70.44;

// declare a float pointer variable

double *ptr_var;

 

// make ptr_var point to variable var1

ptr_var = &var1;

// prints 58.98

cout<<"\nThe first value is(var1) "<<*ptr_var;

cout<<"\nThe address of the first data is "<<ptr_var<<"\n";

cout<<"\nThen let the same pointer (*ptr_var)";

cout<<"\npoint to other address...\n";

 

// make ptr_var point to variable var2

ptr_var = &var2;

 

// prints 70.44

cout<<"\nThe second value is(var2) "<<*ptr_var;

cout<<"\nThe address of the second data is "<<ptr_var<<endl;

 

return;

}

 

Output example:

 

The first value is(var1) 58.98

The address of the first data is 0012FF5C

Then let the same pointer (*ptr_var)

point to other address...

The second value is(var2) 70.44

The address of the second data is 0012FF4C
