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 Pointer

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
   int data[5];
   cout << "Enter elements: ";

   for(int i = 0; i < 5; ++i)
      cin >> data[i];

   cout << "You entered: ";
   for(int i = 0; i < 5; ++i)
      cout << endl << *(data + i);

   return 0;
}

Output

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

In this program, the five elements are entered by the user and stored in the integer array data.

Then, the data array is accessed using a for loop and each element in the array is printed onto the screen.
