Hi,
If a function takes a pointer as a parameter as in

void set_owner(Person* p)

how would I write this code? If it wasn't a pointer, I know I'd just write something like

void set_owner(string p)
{
owner = p;
}

Thanks in advance for your help.

Depending on how the variable being passed to the function is declared...

Person guy, gal[10];
   set_owner(&guy);
   set_owner(gal);
   set_owner(&gal[4]);

I want to pass it like this.

set_owner(gal);

So then gal is an array of Person s?

You're getting the answer and the question backwards.
