Doing pointer math: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems

Incrementing a pointer variable's address increases its value by the size of the data type the pointer references. To assign a pointer the address of an array, the ampersand isn't required. Incrementing a pointer referencing an array, sets the pointer to the next element in the array. The sizeof operator obtains the number of bytes used by a variable stored in memory.
