Invoking a Function Through a Pointer

Invoking a Function Through a Pointer

When you call a function through a pointer to function, use that pointer as if it were the function itself, not a pointer. For example:

 #include char buff[10];void (*pf) (char *, const char *);pf = strcpy; // take address of strcpypf(buff, "hi"); // use pf as if it were the function itself
