[james28909]: but to me that sounds like it is actually referencing that data instead of dereferencing it. to me dereference means to break some kind of link or something
[james28909]: the dereference is the physical address of the data needed referenced?
[shmem]: "reference" something means making a reference to something. "dereference" means the invers, i.e. getting the thing the reference references.
[james28909]: or the act of getting the data that way is called dereference?
[james28909]: sorry for the dumb questions
[james28909]: oh ok, i gotcha
[shmem]: "talking of facts, it is irrelevant what you or I think about them." --Georg C. Lichtenberg
[james28909]: is reference the same as aliasing?
[shmem]: no
[shmem]: aliasing means "accessing the same thing by another name"
