It’s unfortunate that pointers to class members have the term “pointer” in their descriptions, because they don’t contain addresses and don’t behave like pointers.
The syntax for declaring a pointer to member is really not too horrible (if you’re already resigned to the declarator syntax for regular pointers):
int *ip; // pointer to an intint C::*pimC; // pointer to an int member of C
All you have to do is use
classname::* rather than a plain
* to indicate you’re referring to a member of
classname. Otherwise, the syntax is the same as for a regular pointer declarator.
void * * *const* weird1;void *A::*B::*const* weird2;
weird1 has the type pointer to const pointer to pointer to ...
