    Source Code:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    int main(int argc, char** argv) {
        // initialization of int and float variables.
        int i_var = 10;
        float f_var = 5.9;
        // initialization of int and float pointers.
        int *i_ptr = &i_var;
        float *f_ptr = &f_var;
        // print values of pointers
        cout<<"Value of int Pointer: "<<i_ptr<<endl;
        cout<<"Value of float Pointer: "<<f_ptr<<endl;
        // print values of variables using pointers.
        cout<<"Value of int variable : "<<*i_ptr<<endl;
        cout<<"Value of float variable: "<<*f_ptr<<endl;
        // initialization of int type array
        int arr[5] = {12,56,76,32,98};
        // Accessing array elements using array index.
        cout<<"Eleemnts of Array using index value:"<<endl;
        for(int i=0; i<5;i++) {
            cout<<arr[i]<<" ";
        Accessing array elements using array name
        which is default pointer to first index in C++.

        cout<<"Eleemnts of Array using array name pointer:"<<endl;
        for(int i=0; i<5;i++) {
            cout<<*(arr+i)<<" ";
        return 0;


    C++ pointers example source code using Dev-C++Working:

    In this program example we have declared two variables of int and float type; Similary have declared and initialized two pointers of int and float type in the next statements. Here is the detail of these variables.

    Sr. Identifie Type Initial Value Size
    1 i_var int variable 10 4
    2 f_var float variable 5.9 4
    3 i_ptr int pointer address of int variable i_var 8
    4 f_ptr float pointer address of float variable f_var 8
    5 arr int array random 5 values 20

    Secondly we declare an array of 5 element of integer data type. Array name is pointer to its first element by default in C++. So that in in for loop we use array name as pointer to access the array elements one after another.
