comp.lang.c FAQ list · Question 6.9

Q: Someone explained to me that arrays were really just constant pointers.

A: This is a bit of an oversimplification. An array name is ``constant'' in that it cannot be assigned to, but an array is not a pointer, as the discussion and pictures in question 6.2 should make clear. See also questions 6.3, 6.8, and 6.10.
