When dealing with pointers, the "&" sign is called the address-of urinary operator. Knowing it's name sure helps to understand when to use it. Is "*" a urinary operator as well, and if so, what is its name? If it is not an operator, then what is it?

Thanks.

Right there under "Member and pointer operators". Thanks!
