Van der Linden devotes an entire chapter to this topic, explaining how arrays and pointers are accessed and what their differences are. My favorite was the very end of the book, How to make Oobleck. The coverage of pointers and arrays was excellent. About Peter van der Linden. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.

Expert C programming: deep C secrets
Actually, since I first picked up this book a few years ago, I've gone over to the liberal arts progrqmming myself. In fact, the various anecdotes are secondary to the main thrust of the work, which is teaching intermediate-level C programmers the kinds of tidbits of knowledge about the intricacies of the C that they'd normally pick up only through years of coding.
Even if you are not using C language, read it at least for FUN! But they are often dull and daunting to a novice in the field, or to a sufficiently experienced programmer who wants to connect with a programming language, but not necessarily by digesting through a prosaic format of instruction.
I was expecting expert-level, clever techniques for writing safer, cleaner C code, and instead I got way more than I needed to know about arrays and pointers, then a bunch of fluff stuff.
Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets
Yes, manuals are important, and an ardent programmer treats them with reverence. It showcases significant failures that have occurred in each of these situations, and the significant dents they can make. Intermediate C programmers with a taste for tradition.

It goes into more subtleties and arcana of the language and full of interesting stories, lore, and jokes about the language. So, if you want to know why the following bit of code will give you a "argument is incompatible with prototype" compiler warning: Quotes from Expert C Programm Programmming do you go about debugging linker errors?
Rating 5 out of 5 woo-hoos! That's basically all this book is. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
