double **p;

.. ... .

... . ..


p= (double *) malloc(sizeof(double) * ( m*n)) ;
... ..

for ( i .... .. .
     for ( j ......

            *(*(p+i)+j)++;
}
}



it is not working because of molloc operation. i try to do, sorted numbers which lenght is m*n... like array[m][n]..

Hi thefirstfbli,

You don't need to do a double dereference here.  The structure that you're trying to create is a table of doubles, NOT a table of pointers to doubles.

Just define the structure as "double *p" and don't get caught up in the double dereferencing.



Good Luck,
Kent

ok but

for ( i=0;i<n;i++)
 for(j=0;i<m;j++)
{
  but in this line ;

    *(*(p+i)+j)++;
}

it gives error..

i did this like

arr[100][100];

for ( i
    for ( j
        a[i][j]=inc;
inc++;

but it is not dynamic..  because i dont know the n and m values .. it comes from somewhere..

" invalid type argument of unary * "  is the fault for the line *(*(p+i)+j);

above, there is no ++ after it..

p= (double **) malloc(sizeof(double*) * n) ;
for( i=0;i<n;i++ ){
   *(p+i) = (double *)malloc( sizeof(double)*m);
}
for ( i=0;i<n;i++ ){
 for( j=0;j<m;j++ ){
    (*(*(p+i)+j))++;
  }
}

Shouldn't it be
*(*(p+sizeof(double)*i)+sizeof(double)*j)++;

Pointers are set up such that (p+1) will always point to the next element after (p). "p++" or "p+1" will increase the pointer's value by the sizeof the element it's pointing to.

.malloc is fine it will allocate required memory
.problem was the statement
  *(*(p+i)+j)++;
 here you are assuming that (p+i) will point to next row of the array which is incorrect.
Here p is **double.

To solve the problem you should declare p correctly this piece of code will solve your problem.

double (*p)[N];//pointer to array of N double data type

 p = (double (*)[N]) malloc(sizeof(double)*M*N);//type cast malloc correctly.

If you're doing one malloc, you're allocating one array.  So, all references have to be in the same array.

If you say double*p = malloc(sizeof(double)*M*N), then you have to refer to elements like p[i*N + j], assuming M is height, N is width,  i is the row and j is the column.
