I have been reading up on pointers (and a few YouTube videos) and I just don't get them at all. I don't understand what the point is (no pun intended). I get that they "point" to a memory location, but I don't understand why or when you would do that, or what that even means if I am honest. Everything I have read or seen has explained it in more or less the same way, but it just doesn't click with me what they do.
Would anyone care to have crack at trying to explain them to me?
