f you want to pass a single int, char etc, then why use a pointer?

On occasion you want an "out" or sentinel parameter, so in those cases you have to use a pointer (or a reference if using C++).
There's lots of cases where you might have a pointer to a single struct that you either want to fill in, or avoid copying the whole thing to the stack. For the latter, of course, you'd mark it as const.
Keep Calm and Carry On
