reference to pointer

I just have the following declaration:
struct stack
{  char type;
   char *ptr;
   stack *next;
}
Later, when I declare a new function:
void push(char& typ, char *nptr)
{  stack* newnode = new stack;
   newnode->type  = typ;
   newnode->*ptr  = *nptr;
   newnode->next  = point;
   point = newnode;
// point has been assigned as NULL at start
}

When I compile, it said that "ptr is an undefined symbol".
What is the problem?

Or, can I use array to implement it instead of pointer, but how can I reference to the char. string in the function?

Thanks a lot.

It's true that I don't see 'guard' in your code anywhere,
but I do notice two things about your code...

One is that newnode->*ptr = nptr; is (my guess) wrong,
you don't want the * there.  If your code really has a
* there, that might be your problem in some indirect
way.

(The other is, and there's nothing technically wrong with
your code here, but, there really isn't any point in
passing typ by reference.  Sorry to nitpick.  This has
nothing to do w/your warning.)

Ahhh.

Replace

newnode->*ptr = *nptr;

with

newnode->ptr = nptr;

If I understand you correctly, that should do it.
