Pointers to Structures as Func Args

I have a header file to a WIN32 DLL.Lib  with the equivalent of this:

typedef struct
{
      int m;
} X_Y;

typedef  X_Y *X_Y;

// prototypes

void WINAPI Funct1(X_Y *px);     // px - a pointer to a struct X_Y;
void WINAPI Funct2(X_Y **ppx);   // ppx - a pointer to a pointer to struct X_Y;

-----------------------------------------------------

Questions:
(1) How do I code my program to call these two functions.
(2) How do I then access members?

(details please I'm a newbie programmer)

Thanks

Declarations:

X_Y xy;        // Variable
X_Y *pxy;     //Pointer

To access the members.
int i;
i = xy.m;      //Member from a variable
i = pxy->m;  //Member from a pointer

Function calling syntax:
To call func 1:
Func1 (&xy);   //Passing the adress of a variable

to call func 2:
Func2 (&pxy)   //Passing the adress of the pointer (=double pointer);
