Comment Re:That reserves memory, it doesn't add bounds che (Score 1) 208

actually (ptr + 20) and *(ptr + 20) can be used .. and is what is most likely translated to by the compiler. Just as printf("%c", "this is a string"[8]); will output the letter 'a' *("this is a string" + 8) will also produce the letter 'a' as "this is a string" is used as the base address.
