C Program to Access Elements of an Array Using Pointer

This program declares the array of five element and the elements of that array are accessed using pointer.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following C programming topics:

Example: Access Array Elements Using Pointers

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
   int data[5], i;
   printf("Enter elements: ");

   for(i = 0; i < 5; ++i)
     scanf("%d", data + i);

   printf("You entered: \n");
   for(i = 0; i < 5; ++i)
      printf("%d\n", *(data + i));

   return 0;
}

Output

Enter elements: 1
2
3
5
4
You entered: 
1
2
3
5
4

In this program, the elements are stored in the integer array data.

Then, using the for loop, each element in data is traversed and print using the pointer method.
