TITLE : Defining and Using Arrays of Pointers to Functions

The following demonstrates how to define and initailize an array
of pointers to functions. In addition, calling a function whose
pointer is contained in such an array is demonstrated.


void (*p[5])(); // p is defined to be an array of
// 5 pointers to functions taking
// no (void) paramaters and returning
// nothing (void)

void foo1(void) { printf("Hello, in function foo1\n"); }
void foo2(void) { printf("Hello, in function foo2\n"); }

p[0]=foo1; // Assign pointer at array index 0
// to point at function foo1.
p[0](); // Now call foo1

p[1]=foo2; // Assign pointer at array index 1
// to point to function foo2.
p[1](); // Now call foo2
