i have function

int test (int id,
            char *name,
            ADDRESS  ** addr);  ## ADDRESS is of type typedef struct

in my code i do,

id = 3;
name = "john";
(addr) = calloc (1, sizeof (ADDRESS))
rc = test(id, name, &addr);

the code comiples fine and runs as expected but the only problem is while compiling, it throws some warning like
 /tmp/test.c:312: warning: passing arg 3 of `test' from incompatible pointer type

how can i get rid of warning
