Hello. The first in the parameters list in the congratulateStudent function reads:
What I would like to know is does the * mean one of the following:
- “a variable of the char type, which is pointer to the address of a variable called student, also a char” OR
- “a variable of the char type, which is a pointer to a variable called student, whose type we don’t know” OR
- “a pointer to a variable called student of the type char” (and we don’t know/care the type of the pointer, or it doesn’t have one OR
- Something else
I guess we’d want to pass the function an address or pointer so we are not sloshing around giant amounts of data where we don’t need to?
Thanks in advance! Love the book so far.
