Tutorial: C Function Pointers


I use function pointer arrays in the GPL'd Space Tyrant game server project. The articles about it are a little old but the software development has continued. It's actually running here.
Function Pointers are pointers, i.e. variables, which point to the address of a function. You must keep in mind, that a running program gets a certain space in the main-memory. Both, the executable compiled program code and the used variables, are put inside this memory. Thus a function in the program code is, like e.g. a character field, nothing else than an address. It is only important how you, or better your compiler/processor, interpret the memory a pointer points to.
