there is no general type that would accomplish this.

but if you have an int that contains a hexidecimal value equal to its address this would be true.

    int AnInteger;

    AnInteger = &AnInteger;

if you did this then your statement

    AnInteger  ==  &AnInteger  ==  *AnInteger.

would be true.
