The variable ScreenLettersP_s is an array of pointers, so the reference ScreenLettersP_s[LetterVertexDataincrement] is one of the actual pointers. The leading asterisk on ScreenLettersP_s means an extra level of indirection which is not required (or valid).
No. Pointers are pointers whatever they point at, be it an array or a structure. Think about a piece of memory as a sequence of cells. So a pointer to any cell allows you to access all the following cells in order, by using an index (pointer plus offset). If you (the programmer) have decided that the area you point to should be treated as if it contains different sized blocks (aka a structure), that does not affect the physical properties of the memory. It merely allows the compiler to calculate the distance between the elements of the structure. And an array of pointers is much the same thing.
If you have trouble visualising multi levels of indirection, then always go for a single level. If you have an array of pointers, then create a temporary one and allocate an array entry to it like:
CUSTOMVERTEX ** ScreenLettersP_s = new CUSTOMVERTEX* [NumberOfTextBuffers]; // an array of struct pointers
CUSTOMVERTEX* pTemp = ScreenLettersP_s; // get the first pointer in the array
pTemp-> // now access the struct items.
I have not used DirectX, but I have used plenty of other Windows' functions that use structures, arrays of structures, and even arrays of structures that contain other unstructured structures. In the latter case, the presence or absence of certain items depends on settings elsewhere.
It is the actual address in the pointer. In that way you can address any array, or any structure just by passing the real address to the function.
void myFunc(char* someData, int length)
for (int i = 0; i < length; ++i)
char c = toUpper(someData[i]);
someData[i] = c; // comnvert the string to upper case
You can now call that function with any array of any length and get it converted.
In every case the function receives the physical address of the array and accesses each
character by using the index value i, where 0 <= i < length.
You can do either of these, depending on what you want to do:
// pass read only array of intsvoid process_Carray(intconst* values, int n_values);
template <int size> // caution: this will create a separate function for each array size!void process_C11array(std::array<int,size> const& values);
void process_vector(std::vector<int> const& values);
// pass read/write array of intsvoid process_Carray(int* values, int n_values);
template <int size> // caution: this will create a separate function for each array size!void process_C11array(std::array<int,size>& values);
void process_vector(std::vector<int>& values);
The first variant is deprecated in C++, it should be restricted to pure C code.
The second variant is useful if you know the size of your arrays at compile time (and it's always the same)
The third variant is the most flexible as you don't need to know the array size, and you can even add more values within your function if you desire.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
