what is the difference between const char *p, char const *p, const char* const p ..

Answer / kumar krishna

CONST char *p;
here the const. keyword is coming before the "*p"
So it affects the value pointed by "p" i.e. "*p"
You can't change the character (value pointed by p).
Although you can change the address stored in "p".

char CONST *p;
same explanation as above

char * CONST p;
here the const. keyword is coming before the "p" and
after "*" So it affects the value of "p" (which holds
the address). You can't change the address stored in
"p". Although you can change the value pointed by p
i.e. "*p"

CONST char* CONST p:
here CONST is coming before the "*" as well as after
the "*". Therefore, as expeected neither the address
of nor the value pointed by "p" can be changed.

pointer...
CONST char* CONST p:
here both , the string as well the pointer will be constant

Answer / magdaleen

In a const char *p the chrac pointed by 'p' is a const, so
u cant change the value of the charac ponted by 'p', but u
can make 'p' refer to some other location.

In a char const *p, the ptr 'p' is constant not the
character refered by it, so u can not make 'p' refer to
anyother location, but u can change the value of the charac
pointed by 'p'
