I've been tasked with figuring out a C program. Unfortunately I am not big on C (woe me) and worst of all there are no C references books around for me to use.

If anyone can give me a brief tutorial (long explanation) as to what this line mean it would be appreciated.

typedef void (*FUNC)();

/* later used in a procedure like so */

static FUNC note_func[2];

void lcp_init(FUNC p_note_func)
  note_func[0] = p_note_func;

Well FUNC is the typedef for a procedure .... the procedure has no parameter and returns no value...

note_func is a array that can hold two functions and lcp_init will place a procedure in the first slot of the array!
