Specifically, can it point to int/float etc.?
What about objects like NSString and the like?
Any examples will be greatly appreciated.
void* is such a pointer, that any pointer can be implicitly converted to
int* p = new int; void* pv = p; //OK; p = pv; //Error, the opposite conversion must be explicit in C++ (in C this is OK too)
Also note that pointers to const cannot be converted to
void* without a
const int * pc = new const int(4); void * pv = pc; //Error const void* pcv = pc; //OK
