Assigning a Specific Address to a Pointer

Question:
How do I assign a specific address location to a pointer (e.g., If I want *ptr to point to 0x5800FF)?

Answer:
You have to use an explicit cast:

void *p;p = reinterpret_cast < void* > (0x5800FF);

Note that this operation is bug-prone and may not be supported on certain environments.
