A.6 Pointers and Dereferencing

C programmers may think that the ^var and {var} expressions are the direct equivalent of C's &var and *var expressions. However, in E dereferencing is normally achieved using array and object element selection, and pointers to large amounts of data (like E-strings or objects) are made by declarations. This means that the ^var and {var} expressions are rarely used, whilst var[] is very common.
