Thanks, yeah sorry I know that most of my questions are a bit self
explanatory, and simple, my first time programming in c, thought id be
ok with knowledge from other languages and examples, but I guess not!
:) i think a books a good idea.

the main reason I said normal is most examples of pointers id seen
were in that format and so assumed it was standard.
I thought so, the reason I asked is that I can't set or read any of
the values from the reserved bytes. From either method, in either
am I missing a step? this is just testing but still not working

x->as= getbytes(x->maxp*sizeof(float));
*(x->as+i)= 10.4;
x->as[i] = 10.4;

set the value at index i

this is the same for all the other pointers, I've tried casting the value too.
